Balmain’s Breathing Colours Gallery is set to host an exhibition of works by the late expressionist artist and Paddington Art School director Stephen Wesley Gorton.
Gorton was recognised for his use of bold, vibrant colours and his reputation for challenging students to lose their inhibitions in their art. He directed and taught life drawing at Paddington Art School from 1981-2001 and was an Archibald Prize Finalist in 1990 as well as being commissioned to paint in Spain.
He also wrote two books and has had his work shown in both Europe and America as well as at home in Australia. The exhibition will be curated by Gorton’s son Aaron Matheson.
The exhibition will be held from Thursday December 15 to Saturday January 14 at Breathing Colours Gallery.
