Steve Sedgwick’s abstract landscapes are inspired by the smells, sounds and sights he experiences outdoors.

“I don’t like predictable. It’s got to be an exciting process,” he said.

Sedgwick a former remedial masseuse, a yoga instructor, and a surfer, is a graduate of the University of Ballarat’s art school in the 1980s.

He says he continues to be inspired by the knowledge of his lecturers, painter Doug Wright and the late Peter Blizzard, a world-renowned sculptor.

“They took us out on all these amazing camps and painting trips. We went to Flinders Rangers, down to the Otways, camping in the Grampians, and that’s when the true learning occurred,” he said.

“They’d go out on the landscape, work really hard, and that’s a model I followed. That connection to place is really important.”
