Meli Axford creates vibrant images that pay homage to the family-friendly lifestyle of the coastal fringe where suburbs stretch out and jut up against farms and forests. With their stunning swimming pools and beautiful pubescent children, these idyllic days are a precious bubble in time. Her paintings are bright, with dramatic contrasts between the saturated underpainting which excite the viewer and draw them in to look closer. Meli’s paintings positively celebrate the Australian dream.
Exhibiting at: 30 Forest Way, Stokers Siding
