Pattern in feeling in pattern

18 September 2021 - 19 October 2021

pattern in feeling in pattern, is an exploration of memory and the flux of emotions experienced in these moments. With a keen eye for colour, Melissa expresses freely, channelling her inner, often intimate conversations onto the canvas allowing the viewer to sculpt their own perspective in time and place. 
 "Melissa Fontini’s dynamic painted worlds are pulsating surfaces where colour and rhythm are the main narrators. Fontini’s work imagines a synaesthetic world where one can see in sound and feel in colour. The works are raw, hidden with sneaky and sexual innuendo and simultaneously joyful."
- Marlene Steyn, Artist
Melissa Fontini (32) is an independent artist living and working between Cape Town and Johannesburg. With a firm foot in the creative world from spending years in performing arts, she found her voice on paper when she took to living on the road for a year. Travelling through South Africa allowed her to explore various mediums and styles, and after she settled in her home studio - she developed her unique language in oil, colour and pattern.
