Melissa Moss, from Asheville, NC, has a background in color psychology and is well-versed in the meanings of colors and their subtle shades and tones. Working with acrylic, pen and ink, and resin, Melissa combines colors in an arresting way, creating a tinted world that is very much her own invention. Melissa’s paintings of delicate trees and otherworldly flowers may depict adorable creatures in peril or pretty pink flowers surrounding a forlorn tree. Tiny details are not always evident at first glance. Often fantastical, this is the subterranean landscape that lies beneath a child’s fairy tale or a Saturday morning cartoon. Her “seedlings” collection was inspired by the tenacity of nature and how, even in the worst of conditions, a tree or tiny flower will sprout up. Feeling sad and frustrated about the news in this country and around the world, Melissa started working on these to give her an escape. They are hopeful and tenacious “seedlings” in search of a better world.
