OPEN SPACE - For just over twelve years, Tim Olsen, has gathered some of this country's most exciting artistic talent in his iconic Paddington gallery. Following on from this success, Olsen has created a stunning new dual-level gallery in Woollhra.
"I want this to be a place of positivity...that the art we maintain here elevates the level of beauty," Olsen says. The first artist to show in the new gallery was Guy Maestri, one of Olsen's youngest starts. "Guy's work has a vigour and an exuberance, being able to work in an abstract figurative way".

Given his line of work and his lineage it's not surprising that the walls of Tim Olsen's family home are lined with an enviable collection of modern art.
