India Mark - From Steel City

India Mark - From Steel City

Starts: Friday, 24 June 2022, 12:00 am
Ends: Saturday, 09 July 2022, 12:00 am
Jan Murphy Gallery presents India Mark’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, 'From Steel City'. Working predominately in still life, India Mark’s paintings are intimate compositions that have been inspired by the artist's hometown of Wollongong. "My still life paintings don’t directly reference Wollongong or the steel works, but they were made here. The colours and shapes of the surrounding industrial area have made their way into my work overtime. The more I look, the more I feel that the vessels in my paintings aren’t too different from chimneys, light houses or new high-rise apartments, reaching up to the sky, emitting, reflecting and fracturing light. In making these works, I stayed at home in my studio. At night I walked my dog in the harbour and saw the container ships queuing to port and the sky go intermittently bright orange, pink and blue from the flames coming from the tops of the stacks. Staying at home over the last two years has completely changed the way I feel about Wollongong..." India Mark, 2022 India Mark graduated with a Masters of Fine Art (Painting) from Sydney’s National Art School in 2018. She is a two-time finalist in the Archibald Prize and a finalist in the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship. In 2021 Mark was featured in hard cover publication ‘Still Life’, published by Thames & Hudson.
