“Colour and optical vibrancy animate Melbourne artist Melinda Harper’s remarkable oeuvre of abstract works developed over three decades. Typically in Harper’s works, forms similar in type — blocks, stripes, circles, triangles or variants of these—are amassed together in striking compositions of seemingly endless variety, from the harmonious to the cacophonous. Harper builds upon early twentieth century abstraction and later generations of modernists, paying particular homage to modernist women artists. Her investigations of colour and form are also intensely felt, visual responses to lived experience, embodying in her words ‘the act of looking, the obvious, the precise and the precious.” Sue Cramer, July 2015, Curator, Heide Museum of Modern Art
