INDIA MARK
Beaus and Buoys

To be opened by artist Roger Crawford

Romanticism in the art and literature of the late 18th and early 19th century has provided India Mark endless stimulation for the exhibition Beaus and Buoys. In particular the Romanticism associated with the sea, it's mysteries and ability to evoke nostalgia, terror and love.

India Mark's exquisite watercolour landscapes completed en plein air at Middlehead, Sydney, document the happenings in the weather, the light on the sea, the city, the boats and buoys. A series of artistic experiments, Mark's initial watercolours evolve into more abstract compositions, focusing on the play of light, the merging sea and sky, and the dance of nature and industry. Initially quite representational, the works slowly become more gestural, and more simplified in Mark's mark making. The execution and skill behind these delicate, gently moody, miniature masterpieces speak of expertise well beyond her young years.

 

 

India Mark's eclectic anthology harmonises in its relation to solitude, and how living in solitude allows one to recall acute details of people, nature and all the feelings inextricably attached. Currently residing and painting in seclusion with other gifted artists in Austinmer's The Outlook Artist's Residence, India Mark resonates these feelings all too well, with the young artist living amongst art and paint, between the coast and the city.

Now presenting a variety of landscape, still life and figurative painting, Beaus and Buoys will be India Mark's first solo exhibition, marking the beginning of what NG Art Gallery believes will be a stunning career for this gorgeous emerging artist.

Join India Mark and NG Art Gallery for what is sure to be a wonderfully romantic, timeless and memorable exhibition, opening Wednesday 20 August 6-8pm.
