ARTWORK: ‘Melbourne Through the Mist’ (Triptych)
DESCRIPTION: ‘Melbourne Through the Mist’ is a set of three original paintings on stretched linen.
The Melbourne Triptych depicts an aerial view of the city as seen from the top of Eureka Tower.
These paintings are a tribute to the constantly changing city that exemplifies the fascination and sense of awe that I feel for our urban landscape. The juxtaposition of man-made structures and organic forms created by nature is an aesthetic I have been particularly keen to explore through my art.
This panoramic triptych of Melbourne has been inspired by a particularly memorable visit to Eureka Tower’s Sky Deck as storm clouds suddenly swept over the city and dense fog shrouded the buildings below.
Experiencing the expansive birds-eye views of the landscape below and the drama that unfolded in the sky above as mist and clouds rolled over the landscape was truly compelling. It had inspired me to try and capture this visual spectacle in paint on canvas.
The finished paintings are an affectionate representation of a dramatic day in the life of ‘Greater Melbourne’ as seen from the Sky Deck at Eureka Tower.
SIZE: The artwork is made up of 3 adjoining but self-contained panels that are designed to hang together as one continuous panorama measuring 270cm (W) x 150cm (H), or separately as individual pieces.
- NB. Each of the 90cm wide x 150cm high panels may be displayed individually if required, or as a set collectively with some spacing allowed between the three panels.
- All the panels have been completed as individual units that work both independently, as well as joined together as one continuous image.
An outer frame is not required as the painted area continues around the sides of each panel
A combination of oil paint, charcoal and pastels applied to a stretched linen base.
The paintings are wired, ready to hang.
