Marnie Ross is a contemporary painter & printmaker based in Sydney. She has been a finalist in numerous art prizes including the Paddington Art Prize and Ravenswood Womens’ Art Prize.

Marnie’s abstract works are a response to organic forms, in particular the evolving shadow patterns cast by tiny branches and seedpods. Nature’s ever-changing designs created by light, movement and time inspire multi-layered compositions of vividly coloured shapes.

Her work represents the moments captured as nature is continually reorganised. Activation of the surface is also an integral part of Marine’s practice and adds to the diversity of texture as bold graphic forms float on a base of raw wood.
