Melony Kara Smirniotis
Melony Kara Smirniotis is a textural expressionist. She lives and works in Sydney Australia. Completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Western Sydney, Nepean in 1998 marked the beginning of taking her artwork to a new level. Post University studies, teaching, exhibiting and curating have been Melony's key areas of focus in the past two decades.
“The art making process nourishes, challenges, provokes, humbles and provides grounding and perspective. My surroundings constantly influence my technique and choice of materials”.
Melony has been exhibiting her work since 2004 with a permanent collection showcased in the Blue Mountains at Gallery One88 Fine Arts. She currently works from her studio in North Epping.
Texture and colour, light and movement remain a constant source of painting inspiration. Such elements are observed and recorded on a conscious and subconscious level daily. This collection of thoughts and experiences tend to build and then eventually pour out into the canvas. She remains open to the concept of change pushing herself to engage in the exploration of tools and mediums. Her constant is the tactility of her work and the subject matter that being nature. Melony aspires to create work that evokes emotion and warms the soul, celebrating natural surroundings.
