By painting exotic yet strangely familiar environments, Australian artist Melissa Haslam offers an escape to a romanticized, whimsical and yet slightly dark interpretation of the world. With an emphasis on narrative theme, her paintings are populated by beautiful, forlorn and mischievous women in fairytale-like scenarios. Combining intricate plant life and figures in often haunting landscapes, Melissa draws influence from vintage illustration, botanical art, Victorian painting, and contemporary fashion photography.
