Marianna Akl + Klaaske Greenwood
+ Martin Blackwell
Marianna’s experiences over the last couple of years has resulted in a shift in her artistic practice. These oversize pieces chart her reflections on human emotions and how they influence our perceptions.
By representing how contrasting feelings can coexist in our day to day lives, she has created beautiful aesthetic patterns. Each piece is a product of precisely worked individual moments combined to create a snapshot.
Abstracted response to Tasmania’s bush and headlands. Watercolour and ink brush strokes convey the energetic yet calm experience of being in the landscape.
In contrast detailed studio drawings juxtapose man made and natural objects in a way that makes logic superfluous, a chance to relax the mind.
Featuring numerous works in various media—paintings, calligraphy, and textile
“3 x 3” will demonstrate how Martin has transformed subliminal philosophical narrative into new modes of expression, through the medium of conceptual art. Also, the narrative for a new collection of textile works, not yet exhibited, is eco-sustainability.
