The day-to-day activities of Australian life in rural, bush and historical settings provide an immediate point of reference in Melissa Egan’s paintings, yet her subjects always relate within and perform against extraordinary backdrops. Within vibrant panoramas, wonderful and colourful sky-scapes provide both important physical and emotional context. And within each sub-text and narrative, something familiar is transformed by the surreal. The gallery is excited to present the artist’s much-awaited, new series of paintings in 2024.
