Melissa Egan: Favourites

December 1, 2021 - December 11, 2021

Melissa Egan, I Flit I Float, 2021. Oil on linen, 61 x 61cm. Courtesy: the artist and Anthea Polson Art, Gold Coast.

Once upon a time the world seemed younger and magic glimmered in shady bowers or radiated from windswept skies and seas ablaze with vivid hues. The art of Melissa Egan reopens a portal into storylands where all gravity has been cancelled and anything is possible. The titles of the exhibition and many of the works therein, indicate a ‘Sound of Music’ inspiration. Delightful, humour-tinged scenarios dance from the tip of Egan’s brush and we, like the von Trapp children accompanying Maria, follow her into the boundless realms of imagination to discover ‘a few of her favourite things’.

The protagonists in Egan’s depictions are, for the most part, rabbits! She explains that aside from folkloric trickster associations, these creatures enable more entertaining personas. As befitting a portrayed epoch, their costuming is exceptionally formal. Egan explains such attire also provides intricate detailing opportunities.

Opening Event 4-6pm Saturday December 11
