Melinda Schawel Here I Am ink and pencil on torn and perforated paper 75 x 105cm

Melinda Schawel's mark making represents a personal and emotional response to phenomena occurring in nature, as well as a meditation on the nature of paper and its aesthetic and physical properties. working with a thick 640gsm weight paper, she scrapes, cuts and peels it back, creating shapes and textures, revealing different aspects of her mediums persona. Ink and acrylic are then painted on sections of torn ad perforated paper and poured on t surfaces, building inter plays between colour and form. 


Natural events have inspired her new series of work and many analogies could be drawn, such as extreme events associated with climate change and the remarkable resilience of the natural world.
