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 off the loom in Bhadohi, India, late June, expecting to arrive into the Grounded showroom early July. 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.
