By Simone Melville
985 mm x 680 mm
Simone Melville is a Melbourne based artist who draws inspiration from her Grandfather who was an Australian landscape painter. Simone works from her studio at home in the Outer East of Melbourne and enjoys gathering inspiration from nature, especially water and ocean scenes. She has a Certificate in Fashion Design and has studied Abstract Expressionism at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Simone’s work has been exhibited at several Melbourne Galleries and her paintings are held in both businesses and private collections throughout Australia and the USA. The paintings selected for this exhibition are all inspired by nature and water and presented in an abstract style.
‘Ripples of Time’ is inspired by the mesmerising ripples formed on the shoreline when the tide recedes. It has been created with a beautiful texture and a soft pink colour palette. The painting changes with the light throughout the day which adds another element of interest.
