This exhibition will showcase works by Evan Salmon.

"The Port Kembla dockyard steams and flares against the backdrop of the escarpment. Everything seems to be painted iron red, olive green, industrial grey, Blue Scope blue. I jump in my car and head to Outer Harbour. I carry a field easel, small canvases, tubes of oil paint, a palette. I am filled with excitement and nervousness as I contemplate starting a painting. Once I find my subject I've only a short time to record the light before it inevitably changes. If I'm lucky I'll start to feel that I'm finding my way, and trust my instincts towards its conclusion." Evan Salmon, 2014
