In the Transient Space

Melissa Boughey


Mixed media + oil on canvas


195cm H x 195cm W x 5cm D


Melissa’s  work speaks of a life lived on the land, an intimate connection with both the wild and tamed landscapes in her close daily interactions of working on a farm and revegetating native habitat. Titles often allude to the narrative experience of these spaces and provide some insight into the thought process behind the art.

Says Melissa: “In this most recent series of work I felt it was important to have the courage to make mistakes (to go all in). This is when the integrity to the work and the process comes to the fore, when ego-crushing disasters, scraped back, and reworked, start to show a glimmer of hope, a memory that has been bubbling away springs to the surface from the murky depths of subconscious thought. 
While I still had the Pilbara in mind from a recent road trip to Karijini (such as the strata, rock pools, gorges, ghost gums) this work also references my backyard (wetlands, bush, ocean) on the south coast of WA. It is between these two worlds of desert and bush, or coastal and inland where new ideas emerge.”
