About melissa stewart
Melissa Stewart is an artist based in Victoria, working predominantly with photography but also painting, whose work aims to invite the viewer to take a moment to be present with the natural world she cherishes. Her practice is very intuitive, allowing for a long time of meditative observation of the Australian landscape before she makes the work, in a communion with the elements surrounding her, such as the seaside, the trees but also horses, which are prevalent in her work. She epitomizes the resilience of nature as a mirror to our own and wants to encourage the viewer, through her organic and natural aesthetic, to value the importance of nature in our daily lives.
