LESLEY MEANEY | Becoming Australian | 50 Years
Germination in Yellow, 2008, acrylic, nylon thread on canvas and board, 40 x 170 cm. Private Collection
With a spirit of enquiry, Meaney draws inspiration from the Australian bush, the heart of the forest and desert. Each of these places, over time, have come to define Meaney’s identity and sense of home.

This is an evolving journey, a kaleidoscopic visual feast of vibrant colour, pattern and texture, traversed through painting, drawing, curious objects and stitched works.

The exhibition presents a variety and abundance of works that speak of impermanence, the minute details, transformations and forces of nature and their translation into becoming Australian.

The exhibition will coincide with the launch of a book featuring Lesley's work, Lesley Meaney Becoming Australian an Artist's Journey. All proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to support a brighter future for children with brain cancer.
