Arone Meeks 'Beyond the Blue: Unbroken' is the culmination of a six week artist residency at Megalo Print Studio + Gallery generously supported by artsACT through their arts residency funding. During this residency Meeks has worked closely with the Megalo staff to produce a new suite of etchings and lithographs. The exhibition also includes a selection of monoprints, relief prints, lithographs and etchings produced throughout his career.
Arone Meeks is a kuku Midigi man currently based in Cairns. He creates works that speak to us of cross cultural connection, relationships, gender, traditional and modern spirituality and his environment. His extensive accomplishments achieved through study, residencies, commissions, community arts and public art certainly contribute to an outstanding career to date, which will only continue to grow given his passion and determination. His works are a testament not only to his skills and talents as a painter, sculptor and printmaker, but also to his wonderful sense for colour and design that allows his work to shine. Arone has also worked extensively in indigenous Sexual Health and in remote communities.
