“The success of every woman should be the inspiration to another” — Serena Williams

Sculptor Mela Cooke’s inspirational creations spring from the dedication and dexterity of women who move mountains. Opening on January 11 at Manyung Gallery Sorrento and running until February 2, this gifted sculptor’s latest exhibition, Women in Action, brings sportswomen and their commitment to the physical and mental strength it takes to succeed to the fore. And the result is fluidly charged excellence.

Mela, who has worked in various mediums including marble, now solely sculpts with clay and bronze, which gives her great satisfaction. Her current work has been built from tennis great Serena Williams’ quote above and celebrates sportswomen from Australian rules, soccer, basketball, archery, cricket, golf, netball, water sports and volleyball arenas in all their glory. Here we see Mela’s deft hand and real talent for charging her medium with endless energy. Each piece flows and grows with confidence as her female subjects take flight with their eyes fixed firmly on the prize.

Mela’s sculptures are informed by her “enduring interest in portraying and defining the character and beauty in people”. Visit Manyung Gallery this month to catch a glorious glimpse and take home luminosity in motion.
