MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA
Jennifer Webb, Artist in residence at Port Art Gallery, has been consistently creating paintings inspired by Melbourne, portraying various water views around Melbourne city since her nostalgic return from living outside of Australia . Seeing Melbourne through new eyes had renewed her long term endearment to the city as a source of inspiration in her paintings. Other subjects appear in her series, but throughout recent years the skylines have dominated. In the most recent direction in this neo-impressionistic series, her chosen theme (Melbourne skylines) still inspires but the scenes have been stripped back and reinterpreted into their most basic and essential abstract shapes.
