Congratulations to Steve Lopes for his selection as a finalist in the 2022 Doug Moran National Portrait Prize Finalist in Sydney.
The Doug Moran National Portrait Prize is Australia's richest portrait prize and judges original artworks from Australian artists, capturing Australians from all walks of life, whether a public figure or someone from the artist’s circle of experience. Works are painted at least partly from life with the sitter known to the artist.
The winner will be announced Wednesday 30 Nov 2022. The winning work will be acquired into the Moran Arts Foundation.
Steve Lopes is a Sydney based painter and printmaker known for his figurative landscape. He often works en plein air, painting vignettes of a place which are used as references for large-scale studio works.
While his landscapes are often a representation of what he saw, the figures are often imagined personalities, or placed into the composition after the fact. He often depicts isolated figures to emphasise the displacement of the human figure within the world.
Steve's works have been acquired in collections such as the National Art Gallery of Australia, Parliament House Art Collection, Canberra, BHP Billiton Art Collection and the Time Warner Collection in New York.
