THE ART EDIT TEAM TAKES A CLOSER LOOK AT THESE ARTWORKS

The work: Meli Axford, Pink Pool. Oil on board, 40.6 x 50.8cm.

Coming from a background in design, NSW-based artist Meli Axford’s unique approach to painting is cleverly calculated. Pink Pool is based on a photograph of the artist’s daughter and dog, poolside in their home. The combination of vibrant pops of colour with a detailed and intricate process makes Meli’s work truly unique. Her goal in this work was to translate the feeling of a distinctly Australian, poolside experience.
