Exhibition: Melissa Boughey, Eutierria: Moments in Nature
"My process begins with an immersion in the landscape (camping, walking, swimming); jotting notes; scribbling responses; and creating a shorthand code for the natural environment. To be absorbed in the moment; a fleeting feeling of oneness with nature (Eutierria), brings a deep sense of calm and is a perfect remedy for busy lives lived. Paintings are created in my bush studio (on the south coast of WA) where I work intuitively. Allowing the work to develop of its own accord is paramount to the process; through mark-making, colour play, and integrity to materials and surface."
