KERRY-ANNE BLANKET

KAB Gallery, Terrigal

Softly Softly is an elegant and understated representation of the rural landscape. Meg Vivers has approached the subject with a delicate palette, while the media appears soft and gently worked. This artwork is pleasant and calm with beautifully soft contrasting colours – I could easily enjoy relaxing in front of it. The light and muted tone would be best displayed in a light-filled space. In my opinion, it would be perfectly positioned in a lounge retreat or bedroom.

ALEX THOM

Thomgallery, Byron Bay

We are invited to walk into this composition Softly Softly, then suddenly vertically up and over beyond the horizon line. An identifiably Australian landscape is depicted via naivety and directness, while the flattening of the picture plane is a methodology resonant of Fred Williams. The artist has a delicate hand and through the application of materials an overall calm is achieved. The piece would position well in a contemporary minimal space and a simple box frame could enhance it further.

NADINE WAGNER

Wagner Contemporary, Sydney

It is evident that Meg has a genuine feeling for colour and aesthetic. Softly Softly is a loose, sensitive and abstracted image of a landscape represented by delicate marks and gentle colours. The scale of Softly Softly will enable this impactful piece to set the tone in a transitional style interior which meshes old world traditional with the world of chrome and glass, essentially combining two styles in one and resulting in a modern cohesive space.
