Melissa Artemis Shemanna is a visionary artist & art gallery curator, residing in an off-grid forest tree house studio in the Yarra Valley, Australia. Her paintings hold an evolutionary enquiry into deeper human and cosmological intelligence, contrasting super worldly imagery of organic form, futuristic technology and hyper-colour lenses with a visionary edge. Shemanna’s use of oil paints, tempera and local ochres, produce an emotionally rich & saturated experience through colour, luminosity and sacred mythic symbology that delves deeply into ancient occult wisdom.

‘Deception’ is when a personally acquired viewpoint that is perceived as ‘Reality’, is challenged, deconstructed and or smashed apart! The art of deception, is an intricate act of chaos and order that are entwined in an infinitely spinning dance of particles and consciousness.. fractal patterns that emerge from the vortexual union, render entirely limitless perceived spaces. Creation and destruction are the eternal dual force pair, with their love child ‘consciousness’ forming the trinary action needed to project the emanation of an observing force into Form.
