Artist Statement, Still Life exhibition

My interpretation of still life is a decorative style of painting which includes subjects such as woven baskets, a vase and a treasured Indigenous bowl in the composition. I have also incorporated my love of painting Australian native flowers, fruits and vegetables, placing them in baskets and bowls, with closer scrutiny, making an ornamental display filling the canvas.

Stephen Trebilcock

Stephen's first solo exhibition was held at Hill-Smith Fine Art in 1990, by whom he has been represented since. In 1993, he was awarded a travelling scholarship to Europe, where he completed a course of study at the Slade School of Art in London. Time spent in Venice also had a great impact on him, and the result of this travel is the classical and timeless appeal that his works possess.

Stephen continues to paint in his Adelaide Hills studio, working towards exhibitions as well as undertaking selected commissions. Since 1990 he has held numerous solo exhibitions around Australia and overseas. The SALA 2005 exhibition marked his tenth solo exhibiton with Hill-Smith Fine Art.
