Marisha Matthews is a South Australian based visual artist, working mostly in oils. Her practice draws attention to the fall of light on objects, transparency, surface and reflection. Her application of paint is both painterly and textured. Her subjects are lush and rich creations from everyday life; fruit, flowers, glass and silver objects but also the ordinary – succulent plants, a silver bucket, a broom, a lunch box, are all treated generously with paint revealing otherworldliness and luminance.
Since graduating from Adelaide Central School of Art with Honours in 2019, Marisha has completed a year-long residency at Pembroke School, in The Balnaves Enterprise Hub. She has collaborated with Debra Nangala Mcdonald, painting together a series called Two Women Dreaming. During 2020 Marisha completed a major commission for the Botanica Apartments, Glenside featuring magnolia flowers and local foliage in eight panels.
