Meg Cowell

For this series, artist Meg Cowell installed a 1000 litre pool in her country-town backyard, in which she arranged her subject, using water as a medium of buoyancy and illusionistic display.

The objective for Cowell is to achieve a sense of the garments being inhabited, not only by their absent wearer, but also by a complex of moods, emotions, and constructs of the feminine.

The dancing, light caressed, confection of a gown in Sweet House is the stuff of fantasy or fairy-tale, yet the smoky wisps and tendrilsof its fragile underskirt extraordinary in their painterliness - suggest an incipient process of osmosis, reminding us of water`s symbolic associations with transformation.
Victoria Hammond

The effect of these images en masse is evocative, sensual and uncertain; dismembered sirens float unanchored, dark water creatures waft to the surface.
