Hello

Melissa here, I am an established Multidisciplinary Artist  based in the East Coast of Australia. 

My style is intricate, detailed, contemporary in it's various forms, with lots of colour! 

I love both masculine elements of timber & metal, balanced with feminine elements of rope & textiles.

I am known for blurring the lines between art, design and craft.

I often think BIG and am passionate about bringing together community through my art.

Hope to connect with you soon - Melissa Carey (read more about the artist HERE)

Art - Body of Work

The Spiral of Life

Body of Work

The helical spiral, as found in nature, is essentially the transmission of energy, radiating out and drawing in, infinitely and eternally. Therefore we exist in nature, flowing with energy, and as we connect with each other, it creates an infinite flow of energy and unity - the very essence of life itself flowing through us.

The sculpture was made entirely of pine timber and screws, in a parametric, helical spiral that Melissa designed & built herself.

Connection

Body of Work

This body of work was born when Melissa completed an Art Residency for 2 weeks in Berlin Germany. 

"Connected" which represents the connection between people - how sometimes we want to isolate ourselves and hide away, when what we really need is connection. 

Melissa uses recycled t-shirt fabric to create her own style called "drawing with yarn".

Bottled Up

Body of Work

Art installation using suspended found bottles.

'Bottled Up' represents the repression of emotions through the visual form of suspended bottles - as we bottle up our emotions, they start piling up, hanging onto a thread, and once one moves they all move, entwining each other.

Without emotions, we are LIFELESS. They are the true beauty of authentic expression. They are an outer expression of our inner world. They create connection with our very essence of being. They give us FREEDOM to fly. They give us a VOICE.
