Melanie Currie-Unsworth

melanie_currie_unsworth_artist_photo

Melanie Currie Unsworth is a self-taught
Canadian artist. Living on the island of Cape
Breton, she draws her inspiration from the rugged
landscape and ever-changing seasons. Melanie
has had a long-standing involvement with the arts
over her lifetime. Many of the skills she acquired
from her work as a chef and wedding cake
designer translate into practice with creating painted work.
What truly captivates Melanie are the abstract qualities
found in nature. She is fascinated by the varied lines, shapes,
shadows, and colours which exist around us.
Melanie uses a combination of palette knives and brushes
to fabricate the depth, tone, and colour of the subjects. While
staying true to portrayal of realistic elements (i.e. form of trees),
she prefers to incorporate hues and tones from the environment
at large. An example of this would be reflecting colours of the
evening sky in the branches and leaves of the trees portrayed.
The intention of this is to infuse realistic elements with abstract
overtones. She also employs metallic paints and pouring
medium to create an effect similar to stained glass.
