“Four arty friends” formed MELD in 2012. Margaret, Elizabeth, Louise and Devereux formed MELD. The artists are me, Elizabeth (normally known as Liz) Arnold, Louise Wells and Julie Devereux. Our website is http://www.meldarts.com/wordpress/
The show is on at the Showcase Gallery, cnr Beaufort and Aberdeen Streets in Perth.
Our exhibition opening on Friday 17 October 2014 was a tremendous success and as it’s all on the MELDArts website I won’t repeat it all here. But I want to add the images of my work in Hidden Revealed Transformed now, even though the exhibition won’t close until this coming Saturday 1 November.
|Growth depicts the cyclical production and transformation of a seed into a fully functioning plant; a process in which its hitherto hidden potential is revealed. The Canopy at the very top level of a forest hides and embraces its inhabitants. For how much longer will these canopies and their dependents survive? In Plants, I have highlighted the dependence of animals, insects and birds for their food, breeding and shelter. Forest secrets was inspired by all the marvellous transformations that a forest’s trees and plants do to maintain a clean environment and safe hiding places for birds, insects and other animals.Photography by Josh Wells|
