Mixed media work and prints by Steven Trevillion
31st October-13th November
Private View – 31st October 7-9pm
This is Steven Trevillion’s first solo show. It consists of multimedia paintings and collagraph prints produced by the artist over the last two years. The use of collage techniques, the tearing and gluing of paper and the layering of paint over complex surfaces are all features of this recent work. But ‘What’s New?’ is more than an opportunity for the artist to show new work. In the subterranean spaces of HOUSE Gallery Trevillion invites us to question our assumptions about the relationship between new and old, part and whole, creativity and destructiveness. He encourages us to see connections in everything. The show encompasses a range of moods from the dramatic to the playful, and while some of the work can be experienced in purely abstract terms other pieces invite the viewer to enter a new world or to construct their own narrative.
You are warmly invited to the Open Night of my exhibition ”In the Beginning” on Saturday, 4th October, from 7pm.
The exhibition opens on Monday 29th September and continues until Tuesday 21st October at House Gallery and cafe,
70, Camberwell Church Street, Camberwell, SE5, 8QZ.
I will be showing landscapes and still lives painted in England, Australia and Wales, some portraits and some digital prints from my series ‘When Woman created the World” ”The Charcoal Woman” and ”Our Fear is great, greater is our Connectedness.”
There will be some delicious food, music and convivial company.
And on Saturday 11th October, from 7pm, I will be hosting an evening of music and poetry featuring Hearts Song and some musical and poet friends.

ROBBIE EUNSON | DEBORAH
Codependent is an exhibition of new work by two artists who, whilst approaching it in very different ways, are concerned with exploring ideas that confront ways of looking. Their work specifically makes use of space to encourage the viewer to take a more engaged role in informing their understanding of the work and look beyond the expectations of medium.
Robbie’s work blurs the line between installation and painting, asking the viewer to consider not just the content of the painting, but their placement within the space along with the objects around them. By thinking about all the elements as a whole, the viewer can piece together the narrative and meaning. References to slapstick and cartoon humour play up and undermine the viewer’s assumptions about the clichés of contemporary art.
Deborah is primarily interested in the viewer as a participant. Her process involves creating situations that highlight the ever-changing relationship between viewer and artwork. This current series of work additionally explores ideas relating to modern technology and how it affects this relationship and alters perception. The work attempts not to transport audiences elsewhere or immerse, but to reconnect audiences with the physicality of here and now.
