Melanie’s third solo exhibition, The Other Side of Silence, was held at the Collective Haunt, Inc. Gallery from 23 May – 29 June 2019.

Play list:

Textile works –

Dodged a bullet

Taste the floor

Guts ache

Acrylic paintings on canvas –

Nothing beautiful

Heaving Mass

Outer limits

The other side of silence


City Solace High

Rupture, splitting into rapture
