The watercolor works of Carmel Seymour are bound to sweep you away into a world of abstract wonder and surreal creativity. There is a strong motif of geological exploration that often melds with the concepts of playfulness, curiosity and, perhaps most importantly, immense amounts of imagination.

Based in Melbourne, Carmel Seymour recently graduated from Victoria College of Art. The series of work you see before you, titled "Between here and there is better than any other here or there," is a mixture of fine detailing intermixed with explosions of watercolor blots.

I especially love Carmel Seymour's paintings that have you literally sliding into another galaxy. To me, that really encompasses what it is like to be a child.
