Mel Brigg: Ocean & Earth

An exhibition of emotive paintings by Mel Brigg

Wentworth Galleries present the remarkable works of Mel Brigg at Sydney’s iconic number one Martin Place. This is Mel’s first major exhibition in Sydney in many years and this body of work is the culmination of more than 40 years of painting.

“I draw inspiration from the interior regions of Australia. The vastness and intensity of light, combined with the spirituality of the indigenous peoples, are a never ending source of subject matter for me.

I paint not because I want to, but because I must – I am compelled to paint to convey my feelings and my message. Painting is a powerful way to make a statement about anything that moves you. You can paint an evocative landscape or you can make graphic comment about social injustice, tragedy and the singularity of the human condition. Art painted with feeling can remind people of the reality of our planet. I have the power to reawaken my viewers to the beauty and colour of nature.”
