Stephen Bush grad­u­at­ed from Roy­al Mel­bourne Insti­tute of Tech­nol­o­gy in Fine Arts in 1978 and has since gone on to have a pro­lif­ic pro­fes­sion­al career, rec­og­nized in Aus­tralia and beyond. Cir­cu­lar log­ic and self-imposed work­ing method­olo­gies inform his aes­thet­ic approach to paint­ing. The sim­ple act of behold­ing remains fun­da­men­tal to his artis­tic prac­tice. He lives and works in rur­al Vic­to­ria, Aus­tralia.
