Steve Singline

The horizon is a recurring theme that I have explored in my recent painting. The uninterrupted horizon, particularly when viewed across a body of water can be rich with symbolic meaning. It can be the mystical place where the ‘eternal meets the temporal’, where physical space meets the intangible, unreachable space. It is in these moments when the atmosphere and climatic elements reveal or blur what is beyond us as our gaze is drawn off into the distance.

I am often asked about the locations of the seascapes in my work as there are no identifiable physical characteristics or markers to help the viewer locate the work to a specific place. The absence of a jetty, shipping channel marker, cliff face along the Great Ocean Road, or a lighthouse, etc. This is because the paintings are not paintings ‘of…’ but rather works inviting the viewer into the space of the horizon. The place of calm, of reflection, the ‘Still Point’. They are painted in my studio where I recall a sense of being or aspiration (the hope of being) that is connected to that ‘Still Point’ of the horizon.”
