When art and design collide: Dianna Snape’s Lines and Tangles at StylecraftHOME Melbourne

The rich red tones of Tanzania come to life in Dianna Snape’s Lines and Tangles, adding intrigue to the walls of the StylecraftHOME Melbourne showroom.

When art and design collide: Dianna Snape’s <em>Lines and Tangles</em> at StylecraftHOME Melbourne

Many architectural photographers put their skills and creative flair to use on personal projects. For Melbourne-based architectural photographer Dianna Snape her latest creative endeavour hits home with a truly personal subject matter. Now on exhibition at StylecraftHOME, Lines and Tangles is the culmination of several trips and a resulting love affair with Tanzania, and the resulting photographs show a rich, painterly landscape dotted with the animal life of the African nation. Mildly abstracted, the palette and crisscrossing lines pair perfectly with the textures and finishes of StylecraftHOME furniture pieces.

During the opening at StylecraftHOME Melbourne, Dianna shared her personal insights into the project, including how the images were captured in a hot air balloon at dawn. Because of this, no shadows are cast across the landscape, letting the true nature of the tracks and marks upon of the earth shine through the lens. Joining her for the talk was Miriam Fanning of Mim Design and inside co-editor Jan Henderson. Mim spoke about the importance of art and how increasingly her studio is becoming more involved in art curation in their projects.

The evening drew out a discerning crowd with delicious food and drink making for the perfect accompaniment to the art and homey surrounds of the showroom. 

Thank you for hosting us! 

Lines and Tangles by Dianna Snape is on display at StylecraftHOME’s Melbourne showroom for the next few months, make sure to take it in in person.
