Carmel McCrow – Mélange

Strathnairn Arts Centre
90 Stockdill Drive Holt ACT
Until 20 September 2020

For the oil and acrylic paintings in this collection Carmel takes her inspiration from cast and beautiful Australian landscape from the Kimberleys to the Snowy Mountains. One room features the magnificence and complexity of the sky. The other room is about the land, the earth.

Barbie spoke to Carmel McCrow at Strathnairn about Mélange

Carmel’s mastery of colour and the subtlety of layer upon layer of tonal variation are the outstanding features of all her work. The works demand a distant view to take in their scope, but the viewer is also rewarded by close examination of the many layered interplays of light in her painting.

Carmel is an experienced artist with early qualifications  in drawing and painting from TAFE and a BA (Visual) from ANU. She was a studio artist at ANCA and M16 for many years and now works from her home studio in Canberra. She has exhibited widely with 8 solo exhibitions and numerous group shows under her belt.
