Of Night - Painting on Board
Of Night, Oil on Panel, 22 x 22 cm (unframed).
Of Night is a serene and delicate painting by Melanie Goemans.
Melanie is drawn to the incidental things we rush past and do not notice, to the unstudied natural world and everything else. She draws attention to the overlooked forms. She uses traditional materials to mark their significance.
Melanie grew up in the Lincolnshire fens, spending time in Italy between studying Florentine Renaissance Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London (BA Hons. and MA with distinction). Then followed MA Fine Art (Painting) at the University of Gloucestershire, and a series of residencies including at the Florence Trust, Highbury. She now works from her studio in Cambridgeshire. Over the past 20 years Melanie has exhibited at the Jerwood Space, Sarah Myerscough Fine Art, Thompson’s City Gallery, jaggedart, Rebecca Hossack Gallery, Kittoe Contemporary, London; Belgrave Gallery, St Ives; The Stratford Gallery, Stratford upon Avon; Gallery 94 at Glyndebourne Opera House; Irving Contemporary, Oxford, and elsewhere. She is represented by Beaux Arts Bath, Cornwall Contemporary, Penzance, and Eastwood Fine Art, Hampshire. Her work is held in collections worldwide including The Dorchester, the Pizzuti Collection, Imago Mundi, Exton Park Vineyard, Fox Linton, Bridgeman Art Library. She was shortlisted for the John Moores Painting Prize (2020) and has featured in the ING Discerning Eye and National Open Art Exhibitions.
