Melissa won the 2017 Raphael Prize and the film by Michael Pisano (Pisano Films) gives you a hint as to some of what Melissa will share with us on Sunday 24 March in Joondalup. She will describe a lot more to do with technique, materials and the complementary inter-activities that emboldened this series of work:
“Cameron’s winning artwork “1.1.2017” catalogues one day of gun violence in the USA. A total of 62 fatal gun incidents happened in 55 places throughout the U.S. on January 1, 2017 with 66 guns involved and 73 people impacted.”
