Artist Melissa McVee has created a magical experience. As the sun rises and sets, the Rose Coloured House will bathe its surrounds in multi-coloured hues.

The work has been created to reflect a simple sketch of our idea of "home".  Encouraging viewers to walk around and through the home, the inserts of transparent colour will bathe the surrounding area in multi-coloured hues, moving around the ground as the sun rises and sets.  It's reminiscent of "rose coloured" memories of our childhood - with the passage of time layering them with wistful nostalgia of yesteryear.

The temporary art installation will be on display from 7 January to 28 March 2019.

The A-Reserve program of temporary public art commissions artworks for selected green spaces, distributed around the whole of the City of South Perth. This program seeks to provide "front-row" arts and cultural experiences to people who reside in different parts of the City. View more Public Art in the City.
