I’m so very excited that Melbourne based illustrator Melissa Haslam is having her first first solo exhibition, though sadly for me it’s all the way over in California, USA. ‘Wild Fields’ will feature her largest body of work to date, all showcased at the Cerasoli : LeBasse in the gallery’s Project Room.
Melissa Haslam has concerned herself with a series of interactions and connections between humans and nature, focusing more so on interrupted cycles of life, the delightful characters in her work become part of a natural world she has created for them.
I’ve only to date seen her works in Curvy and Semi-Permanent books, how I would love to admire them close up as there is just a perfectly balanced amount of innocence and adult hood that make her works so enchanting.
Also at the same time there is an exhibition by Japanese US based artist Yamamoto whose works reflect a continuation of intimate statements of self-expression. I’ve never heard of him before, however after checking out his works online I’am very intrigued by both his style, technique and stunning use of mixed media.
