Artist Bio

Marnie Ross

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

Marnie’s abstract works are a response to organic forms, in particular the evolving shadow patterns seen in the natural environment. Nature’s ever-changing designs created by light, movement and time inspire multi-layered compositions of vividly coloured shapes. Her work represents these moments captured as nature is continually reorganised.

Activation of the surface is an integral part of Marine’s practice and adds to the diversity of texture as bold graphic forms float on a base of wood or linen. Marnie explores the contrast between soft dusky tones and saturated bold colours, further enhanced by the variation in paint application in thin frosty glazes and solid layers. Her recent work is inspired by a tour of central Australia.
