About Stephen Baxter

I grew up in picturesque Murwillumbah, Northern NSW. Being an artist was always the plan. I began painting the landscape early on as it was majestic and simply unavoidable in Murwillumbah. The views from our verandah went on for miles and miles, over an arm of the Tweed River, across the cane fields all the way to Wollumbin (Mount Warning) in the far distance. Since those early days, I have continued to paint, draw and make sculptures about my immediate environment. I have also pursued my long-term interest in model making and Pop Culture, in between my various jobs as curator and art installer. Now, working full-time as an artist from my studio in Southport, Queensland, Australia is my dream job. I love nothing more than to enter my studio overlooking our Australian native garden to experiment with all manner of ideas, subjects, and mediums. I believe experimentation is a very important trait for the development of my artmaking in an ongoing quest for perfection, however fleeting it may be. I predominantly sell paintings and sculptures as the bread and butter of my art practice. The underlying process to my working methodology is Bricolage. Structural anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss coined the term in 1962. The Bricoleur “shapes the beautiful and useful out of the detritus of human life.”

Even before coming across Strauss at university, I collected and reclaimed found objects and images from around the neighborhood and more recently the Internet. Once collected, these found ready-made treasures are examined, manipulated, and reconfigured, the historical significance of each is reinterpreted, and the stories each holds within retold in a new light. Every object and image has its own history, story and a relationship with each person it comes into contact with. Every time an object is held or an image viewed it affects the person holding or viewing it in profoundly different ways. By collecting, re-examining, and reinterpreting each, I breathe new life, create new stories and new myths for us to hold, feel and cherish.

Stephen’s artworks can be seen in publications, art galleries, and many public collections, including; Queensland Art Gallery (QAGOMA), ANU Australian Dictionary Of Biography Canberra, Gold Coast City Gallery (HOTA), Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Southern Cross University (SCU), University of South East Queensland (USQ), Tweed Valley Regional Art Gallery, Stanthorpe Regional Art Gallery, Grafton Regional Art Gallery,  Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery, Morton Bay Region Art Collection, Downlands College Toowoomba, Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery, Griffith University Art Museum, Griffith University Hospital Gold Coast, Mater Hospital Brisbane, Australian and International private collections.

Online Art Sale

As a creative, physical medium, art often finds it challenging to adapt. We think this is fairly ironic as art can also be fluid and open to interpretation. Why then, should the showcase of physical art, be restricted to physical galleries?

The artworld is typically a small and secluded one that doesn’t get much attention from the world of technology. We wanted to change that by merging both technology and art to create a virtual gallery and online art sale platform. It is because of its secluded nature that artists find it so hard to break through and get involved and we want to do something about that. Founders Nancy Donaldson and Jarrod Knight started out with a shared goal. To create an easily accessible place for people to see, buy, learn about, and sell art online. Art Lovers Australia has become everything that envisioned and more but most importantly, it’s a community that anyone can be a part of.

How Do I Choose from All the Amazing Art For Sale Online?

When you’re spoilt for choice, choosing your next work of art isn’t easy. Art has the ability to make you feel a range of emotions so you need to first consider the tone you want to set for the space your art will go in. Something relaxing in the living area, something playful where you host guests and something sensual for the bedroom. You don’t want the wrong artwork in the wrong room as it will throw off the mood in that particular area. Another key thing to consider when browsing all the amazing art for sale online is your budget. You don’t want to find yourself in a position where you’ve fallen head over heels for artwork that’s out of your price range. Instead of showing you art that is outside of your budget, we allow you to filter your search by price, size, colour, and even medium so you find exactly what you’re looking for when you shop for art online. While you might have an idea of the type of art you’re looking for, it’s important to keep an open mind. Instead of only looking at oil paintings for sale, try not to be so narrow in your search. Broaden it a little bit and you might be surprised by what catches your eye. It could be a photograph that steals your heart in the end.
