Room to See
Thu June 13 - Sun July 7Free admission
Join us for the official Opening of Melinda Marshman’s ROOM TO SEE.
ROOM TO SEE is a series of oil paintings that address meditative moments and pauses in life. Seemingly inconsequential glimpses of nature and ‘small moments’ are the inspiration for this body of work: the ‘mind space’ afforded by a road trip with which to see things anew, a beautiful view glimpsed from a window, the night sky, or a brilliant autumnal sky admired on a walk.
Melinda Marshman is an artist currently living and working in Sydney, recognised for her spare and reductive style. Her work reflects a process that begins with initial ‘conversations’ with nature, followed by the filtering out of unnecessary detail in the studio, and that expresses sensory memory and the joy she experiences when immersed in landscape.
Melinda graduated from the National Art School with Honours in 2014, and has been the recipient of numerous awards and residencies, including the NG Creative Residency, Provence (2018), The Storrier Onslow National Art School Paris Studio Residency, Cite Internationale Des Artes (2015), The Ravenswood Women’s Art Prize (2018 and 2017), The Chippendale World Art Prize (2017), The Doug Moran National Portrait Prize, semi-finalist (2014), The Robin Gibson Gallery New Talent Award (2013) and The Mosman Art Prize (2011). Her work is held in private collections and the National Art School collection.
Weekdays 9am-5pm. Weekends 10am-2pm.
