ARTISTIC HAVEN YARRA’S EDGE LAUNCHES NEW LORIMER GALLERY EXHIBITION
Melbourne photographer Jane Morrison’s first ever solo exhibition, ‘Spectrum’, has opened at the Lorimer Gallery located within Mirvac’s Yarra’s Edge community.
Morrison is a long-standing resident of Yarra’s Edge, a community that actively fosters creativity. The city skyline outlook, waterside location and serene riverside walks provide artistic inspiration, while Mirvac’s investment in urban art throughout the community further enriches the precinct.
Over many years of practice, Morrison has developed a unique understanding and passion for landscape photography. She has travelled the world capturing scenic and hard-to-access landscapes, often from the vantage point of a helicopter. ‘Spectrum’ showcases her exceptional work, highlighting the dichotomy and variation of colour between landscapes around the globe – expect to see images from Antarctica, Central Australia, Switzerland, Lord Howe Island and more.
The exhibition is being sponsored by Mirvac, which values fostering the arts and supporting the local community. Urban art is a key feature of the Yarra’s Edge masterplan, with diverse works including an interactive musical garden complete with flower bells and a gong wall spanning 11 metres, a striking glowing sculpture inspired by bioluminescence that emerges six metres out of the Yarra River, and an eye-catching building facade installation that ripples in the wind. All of these pieces can be enjoyed by visitors and residents of the precinct.
Mirvac General Manager of Residential – Victoria, Elysa Anderson, said Yarra’s Edge, Melbourne’s newest riverfront residential precinct, was already nurturing a notably creative community.
“Over the years we have found Yarra’s Edge resonates strongly with creatively-minded people who are drawn to the precinct because of its picturesque views and Mirvac’s dedication to enriching the community through public displays of artwork,” said Ms Anderson.
“We are even creating floorplans for artistic residents. Our Forge Artist studio was created to maximise space and foster a sense of creativity, while Cargo Homes deliver a hybrid home-office or studio that can provide a space for creatives to work on new ideas and business ventures in the comfort of their own home.”
Jane Morrison’s ‘Spectrum’ exhibition will be held at the Lorimer Gallery from March 22 – April 18, open weekdays 8:00am – 3:00pm.
