A celebration of the human form, this exhibition is the culmination of Grazia Marin’s long interest in figurative painting. The works may be considered a bridge between realism and abstraction as the figures are placed in surreal settings. This has the purpose of highlighting the figures and allowing the viewer to see them unfettered by ‘place’.
Marin is a visual artist, creative writer, art educator and psychologist with qualifications in visual art, psychology, counselling, education and training. In her visual art, she prefers to focus on social issues, themes and myths as well as decorative work. Many mediums attract her including oils, watercolour, pens, pastel, mosaic, textiles and so on and she has used most of these in her four solo exhibitions.
