Melanie Eade

  • Biography

    Melanie Eade was born and raised in Wellington, New Zealand.
    Her tertiary background included a course in Visual Communication at Wellington Polytechnic; Fine Arts at Ilam, Christchurch and she completed an Interior Design course in Sydney.
    Most of her career has been focused around Interior Architectural Design in the retail sector as a Retail Design Manager for large Australasian shopping centres.

    While art, in various forms, has always been in her life, one of the main reasons for moving to Clyde, from Auckland in 2009, has been to reignite her passion for fine art.
    Melanie’s works are strongly influenced by her surroundings. The Central Otago landscape has enabled her to capture the unique geography, colour palette and distinct seasons, only found in this part of the country.Melanie showcases not only the natural beauty of the region but also how the landscape can co-exist with functional man-made objects and structures. As an artist I look past the original or present function of these elements, seeing the relationship of the “form” to its surroundings.With Central steeped in so much history there are visual reminders everywhere of our past. These “reminders” have also extended to objects from the present.”
    “I work predominantly in pastels, mainly oil pastels with a black wash that brings out shadows and outlines. This illustrative style requires me to simplify the composition giving it a wonderfully bold, colourful and print like quality.”
