Centered on the themes emanating from our universe - the planets, the stars, the Big Bang and metaphysics, the work of Steven Deronne takes in the beauty and immensity of the cosmos. Steven aims to provoke thought about slowing our hectic ways of life, learning to do a bit more star gazing and appreciate and look after the universe we exist in. He is inspired by the ideas of Malevich, Mondrian, Kandinsky and Rothko. He works predominatley in steel. Born and bred in a blustery fishing village in Brittany, France, Steven began his art career studying Fine Arts at Ecole des Beaux Arts in Rennes, France. In 2000, after travelling broadly, he settled in Australia, resuming his studies and graduated with an Advanced Diploma of Fine Arts - TAFE Sydney Gallery School. Steven currently works from his studio in East Gresford, in the upper Hunter Valley.
