Prints & Sculpture

About

This series of prints has been inspired by several visits I was privileged make to Melaleuca in the South West of Tasmania during the past eighteen months.

Visiting such isolated landscapes and the resonance of the history they contain can have a powerful impact. Such places are on the edges of our worlds where the blue at the horizon, the blue of land and sea that seems to dissolve into sky, is the blue of distance. There is solitude, a desire and a longing associated with such places.

– Melissa Smith

Having always made work that was a response
to my perception of place, this new body of glass
sculptures marks a departure from my interest in
architecture. This new work is about the landscape:
my local landscape, my home.
