The Good Life

Artist: Melissa Egan
Location: perth
Queensland artist Melissa Egan explores “The Good Life” in her first Perth exhibition, inspired by the notion that we are each bestowed with varying degrees of fortune. Egan presents a narrative that is both playful and serious, as mythical & historical characters are engaged in transitory moments of sanctity set amongst evocative Australian landscapes. With a sensuous and romantic palette reminiscent of the old masters combined with her very contemporary approach to innocence and subjectivity, Egan is a wholly original master of craft and technique.
