Take a moment is Shelley Burnham’s 12th solo exhibition.
This series of paintings is inspired by photographs she has taken, along with her own imagining of the world around her. Shelley wanted to illustrate the abstract concept of being present in a moment using her unique painting skills.
Take a moment is a glimpse into Shelley’s life that is not distracted by the past or the future. Shelley’s paintings are executed with a deep sensitivity and an obsessive passion for her craft. Her great love and appreciation of the Australian landscape is a backdrop to Shelley’s acute observations of life. Her multi-faceted paintings often include a quirky sense of humour and childlike honesty and observation. Each painting is imbued with a magic and whimsical quality that is brought to life by her command of colour and texture.
“I think it is really important in our fast paced lives full of distractions vying for our attention to just take a step back and be present – to experience the moment for what it is and to engage with it. That feeling is what I have tried to capture in paint.” – Shelley Burnham 2019
