Kevin Foley

Born 1955

"I have a studio located on a small farm at Mia Mia. My work captures the reality & raw beauty of the Central Victorian landscape in which I am based. The work is always literal in its depictions, but behind its imagery & its specific ties to my surrounds it conveys something a little more abstract: the soul & energy of the Australian landscape and the lives lived upon it. This Spirit of the environment does not require much digging to access, we just have to take a moment to look & observe." Kevin Foley 2021
