Everglades : Resurrect

A collaboration of printmaker JAN MELVILLE and photographic artist TRACY PONICH.

The artists’ subjects, materials and overall mood dovetail, as does the underlying notion of creating art that breathes life into things that are sometimes overlooked. RESURRECT evokes a sense of endurance and renewal of what is often dismissed as transitory, quickly passed by, or forgotten.

 

JAN MELVILLE – Tales of boats, birds and goddesses

Jan Melville is a teller of tales, stories that take the form of the printed image and small-scale sculpture. Jan incorporates found materials into her works. These might be objects from nature, or as discovered elsewhere, then resurrected in unexpected ways to give new life, and a new mythology.

 

TRACY PONICH – Photographs of the land and its elements

Tracy Ponich’s images explore Blue Mountains bushland, and fitting for this exhibition space, aspects of Everglades. These photographs of land and garden join studies of found and fallen minutiae. Isolated flora and fauna, sympathetically captured in studio, come to life through the lens.

Landscape or bush element, Tracy’s photographs possess a stillness and sense of timelessness.
