Kelly Palmer and Melanie Zanker are two artists from different disciplines who use their mediums to explore design.
Palmer’s career as a theatrical scenic painter has influenced her work as an artist. She paints Canadian landscapes that are engaged with mobile structures exploring and interacting within the spaces.
Zanker’s artistic endeavours have shaped a multi-disciplinary practice, which incorporates her skills as a woodworker, seamstress and furniture designer.
Palmer and Zanker will present a collaborative exploration into the spatial dynamics of landscape and furniture. Their focus is to recycle, integrate and re-design objects that have been discarded in order to create interactive Hybrid objects.
