Artist: Melissa Egan
Location: perth
9 - 28 MAY; PERTH CITY Featuring polar bears, stoats, Turkish towels and hares, Imagine conveys an overall awareness of a relationship with our environment and its inhabitants.  Egan's narratives are playful and serious all at once but the themes of innocence and subjectivity are personal and very contemporary.  She is a wholly original master of her craft and technique. Egan is a multiple finalist in numerous art awards including the Archibald Portraiture Prize and the Sulman Prize at the Art Gallery of NSW, and the Doug Moran and Portia Geach Portrait prizes, the Blake Religious Art Prize , the Fleurieu Landscape Prize and the Kedumba Drawing Award. Her work is held in collections both in Australia and overseas.
