Bathe in the Scent of a Mango

Shannon Hamilton was born in Subiaco and spent much of her time abroad studying a diverse range of artists. Her continuing cultural interest has produced many artworks which have been purchased worldwide. The lazy colours of Broome inspired Shannon Hamilton’s exhibition Scent of a Mango. Hamilton’s use of food in her exhibitions is designed to access senses other than the visual and draws on her passion for cooking. Scent of a Mango is the visual equivalent of its name, a summery taste with a hint of luxury and subtle bite. It runs at Gadfly Gallery, 131b Waratah Ave, Dalkeith, from March 5 to 28.
