Melinda Giblett

  • Biography

    Melinda Giblett is an Australian artist whose paintings navigate ancient landscapes in an
    exploration of the unique qualities of land and Country. Following in the traditions of artists who
    expedition into remote and less-travelled regions, she revels in the transformative effects of working
    directly from life in her chosen places, seeking to preserve the significance of landscapes through her
    practice.
    She is known for her expressive paintings and drawings of the Australian bush and desert
    landscapes. They attest to the ecological and natural histories of the earth according to seasonal
    rhythms- her process locating intimate visual splendour in the unexpected. With gestural yet gentle
    brushwork Melinda embraces chance in the act of making marks, pursues the revelatory possibilities
    of colour and finds equilibrium between sparsity and abundance.
    Melinda is a graduate of COFA-UNSW-College of Fine Arts (UNSW Art & Design) beginning her career
    in Visual Arts education, teaching in Sydney and London before presenting her first solo exhibition at
    GAFFA Gallery, Sydney in 2018. She has undertaken significant residencies at Bundanon on the
    Shoalhaven River, NSW and with the Broken Hill Art Exchange. She will commence a month-long
    residency at Collemacchia in the Molise region of Italy in 2024. She is represented by galleries in
    Sydney, Canberra and in the regions of NSW. Her work is held in international and private collections
    across Australia.
