Exhibited across the UK, with her participation in the group show “The British Cut” in Hong Kong last year; Melanie Comber has returned with her first Solo exhibition in Hong Kong hosted by the Cat Street Gallery. Starting on the 16th of April, 12 of her paintings are to be showcased in the gallery, depicting environments of neither definitive as being a pure abstraction or an aerial photograph.
The way she carves into and layers her work intrigues viewers to investigate into the surface, as our perception on depth and perspective are being challenged. Graduated with a BA in Fine Art Painting from Chelsea College of Art, these seemingly landscape imagery are in fact not of a space, but of the artist’s personal feeling to a particular space. Rendered with a distinct technique of dusting the surface with powdery pigments, visit the show to experience the impact of her works as the first person starting next Tuesday at Sheung Wan’s the Cat Street Gallery.
