Two Room One by Coco Meacham
Darwin’s ‘discordant architecture’ is food for Meacham’s visual language through paintings and painted constructions/cut-outs which echo (and reimagine) the built environment, particularly its often overlooked interiors and exteriors.

‘Darwin is a mecca of discordant architecture’, writes Coco Meacham, a recent visual arts graduate of Charles Darwin University who mounts her first solo exhibition in NCCA’s Gallery 2. This ‘discordant architecture’ is food for Meacham’s visual language through paintings and painted constructions/cut-outs which echo (and reimagine) the built environment – its often overlooked interiors and exteriors – in her choice of medium: found plywood, construction materials and house paint. Meacham has previously shown in group exhibitions in Sydney and Darwin, and is also an active zine artist. She has undertaken artist residencies at Darwin Visual Arts Association (2012), and at the Norval Gallery, Derby, WA (2012).
