MELONY KARA SMIRNIOTIS
The art making process nourishes, challenges and provokes. Time in the studio provides grounding and perspective. My surroundings constantly influence my technique and choice of materials. I enjoy pushing colour and texture, letting the two intertwine, taking on their own direction. One informs the other, constantly evolving and building whilst drawing upon my subconscious connection to the subject matter.
Melony has a permanent body of work showcased in Putney at Brenda Colahan Fine Art, the Blue Mountains at Gallery One88 Fine Arts and in her own gallery, Gallery 11:11 in North Epping.
Texture and colour, light and movement remain a constant source of her painting inspiration. Melony remains open to the concept of change, pushing herself to engage in the exploration of a wide range of tools and mediums. Her constant is the tactility of her work and the subject matter, that being nature. Melony aspires to create work that evokes emotion, celebrating natural surroundings.
