As a sensitive person, the act of meditating has become a vital practice in Melly Frank’s life to assist in lessening feelings of frenzy and helping greatly in bringing her back to a sense of focus, balance and calm.
With the knowledge that meditation has helped her mental health immensely, Melly feels compelled to create work that is inspired by the practice.
With the belief that change is the only constant one can rely on in life, Melly aims to reflect this in her work by creating jewellery that can be worn in multiple ways and sculptures that can be interacted with in numerous ways.
Most of Melly’s sculptures have been made to a small scale so they have the ability to relate to jewellery as she firmly believes that jewellery should be enjoyed just as much when it is not being worn.
Melly’s ultimate hope is that when you observe or interact with her work, you may stop and take a moment out of your day and perhaps experience a sense of calm.
Melly Frank and her work can be found either in Studio 242, located on Level 2 of the Salamanca Arts Centre or at SPACEBAR GALLERY on the ground floor of Salamanca Arts Centre.
