New York

New York

New York with its vibrant street signs, hectic traffic and thronging crowds of people on Fifth Avenue absolutely lends itself to mixed media interpretations.
The first one in this series was snapped up by a Sydney sider who rated New York as her favourite city and had visited more times than she could remember. She agreed that the colourful papers all relating in some way to New York set against the monochromatic grey and white background perfectly spelt out the city that never sleeps.
Since that first one, there have been many others, each with their own unique personality but all depicting the buzz and glamour of this unique city.

An interior designer and journalist, Merilyn Chappel has been painting for over 25 years. Initially a watercolour artist, her work has evolved to encompass other mediums including acrylics and inks, but more recently mixed media. This foray into mixed media has resulted in uniquely textured, impressionistic works but these still exhibit Merilyn’s dramatic use of colour and design. Merilyn’s subject matter varies considerably from large dramatic landscapes to small interiors; from bold and colourful fruits to sensitively painted flowers; from Australian stockmen to French villages; from African giraffes to Australian dairy herds; from Sydney sailboats to outback towns – even shoes, hats and teacups have a look in!
