MATTHEWS, Marisha

Marisha’s still life as an attempt at documenting and exploring scenes from her experience and imagination exposing personal narratives, and biographical details, travel and nature.

Images document experience trying to make sense of her domestic chaos, cultural kleptomania, and love for building fantasy interiors, and communal living. 

Marisha’s layering and merging of images in multiple styles of brush work, colour palates and mixed media, reflect an attempt to capture the complex nature of life. Works are generally in oils with under painting of deep coloured textured acrylics. Elements are collaged on paper first in an attempt at planning before being transferred to paint, when they are rearranged, enlarged or reduced in scale. 

Marishas work reveals dark humour at the objects and images that press an increasingly bizarre reality backwards into an art form that it has out grown.
