I love the green of an Australian landscape; always have.
I know it is part of the reason I moved to the sub tropical zone of North Coast New South Wales 20 years ago, where I could surround myself with the green of sugarcane, trees, pasture and forests.
Perhaps it is synchronistic that I find myself placing this small series of work online as we are currently surrounded by bushfires. A reminder that Nature can regenerate after such devastation, and if we get some rain soon - hopefully quickly. (November 2019)
All works are on professional artist 210gsm textured watercolour paper, unframed.
This beautiful series of works are now available online through Bluethumb Art Gallery.
Melinda X Melinda Artist Rugs
I am very excited to be collaborating with the contemporary rug artisan, Grounded Living, of Byron Bay.
Melinda Aldridge, Grounded's founder, says she was instantly drawn to the visual expressiveness and colour palette's of my work, and we are now curating six of these stunning contemporary works into various sized luxury wool and bamboo silk pieces. The custom and one off pieces will be the pinnacle of 100% natural luxury fibres meeting art to produce a stunning avant-garde collection titled "MELINDA X MELINDA", The Artist Collection.
The wool selection and production process for these handwoven designs has commenced and will be coming from the loom in Bhadohi, India, expected to arrive into the Grounded showroom early 2020. Please contact Grounded Living should you wish to reserve a piece.
When I come to create I often fall into a quiet contemplation and meditative space, and in that, my mind will often simply surrender to the deeper presence of silence, stillness and spaciousness.
It is here that I wait for the intention, the vision, or the inference of the ‘next step’ of my art practice.
Over the last few years I have learned the value of slow, quiet and simple; and how these can inform and enrich my work.
