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.
