Melinda Schawel is interested in surfaces – how ink interacts with paper, light shifts across time and objects appear. In ‘Sixteen Weeks’, she mimics a degrading fresco – silvery writing eroding against paper like graffiti under the elements.

Schawel is represented at the National Gallery of Australia, Artbank and the Royal Museum of Fine Art in Antwerp. She was commissioned by the City of Casey in 2019 to create a large-scale public art project. For collectors of works on paper and abstract art, Schawel is a commanding find.
