Zanny Mellor (b. 1986) addresses themes of speed, light and time in a sensory exploration of place.
The impermanence of material, experience and perception drive her painting and photography, where states of presence and remembrance are examined and a tension between control and chance is actively sort after. Fluidity is a defining material concern in her process-led practice, where reductive actions create a measured, gestural language.
