    Linework an exhibition of paintings by Marina Strocchi

    Jun. 23rd - Aug. 1st 2020

    The Residency Alice Springs hosts an exhibition of paintings by Marina Strocchi. Presented by Heritage Alice Springs and sponsored by the Northern Territory Government. Some words about Linework from Marina I have painted for nearly decades, my inspiration has been a combination of landscape, imagination, and objects close at hand. I like to invent a structure using line, which I “take for a walk”, color, texture, and shapes. I try to create a balanced, overall structure. I start with a line or a shape. It could be a landscape, or it could be an abstraction of memories. I move from the point of commencement - I like to create the sense of a net-like a fishing net – a balanced network of lines and shapes where there is a push and pull of elements that create a structure. I try to create a sense of nature even when the subject is inanimate. I like to create organic qualities in my paintings through forms, lines, colors, and patterns: patterns of nature, repetitions, and unexpected junctures. I think that living in the Central Desert has affected my work. I think I paint “the glare” of the sun. That bleached quality that comes from bright sun. My work is an often-intuitive response to nature, in particular the central Australian desert where I have lived since 1992. I work organically, in an attempt to activate the feeling of being in the landscape. I deconstruct and anthropomorphize the landscape and challenge the human-centered viewpoint of nature. Restorative care and reparative action are the points of reference embodied in my environmental work. Through layering of textured mark making, I create the subtle irregularities and patterns of a world where nature is the major stakeholder. I try to create a sense of stillness in most of my work, regardless of the subject matter. The tension between the interdependent line work and form creates the counterpoint for the structure and colour in my paintings. I am trying to create a form of ‘spacial’ harmony: a place of reprieve and refuge, as nature does in life. A fundamental aspect of my work is a response to the brilliant glare of the Australian light and its effect on land formations. My practice is painting, acrylic paint and oxides on linen or handmade recycled Indian rag paper. This collection of works brought together under the title LINEWORK is pushing towards abstract. There are suggestions of land formations and desert landscapes, but my interest here lies with the structure and play of the surface. The handmade recycled Indian rag paper has a very organic shape and feel to work with. It lends itself to a painting that floats. The paper is glued with conservationist’s glue onto gesso-ed marine ply which has been individually cut to match each unique piece of paper. The painting, therefore, becomes an object.

    desertSMART EcoFair

    Aug. 7th - Aug. 9th 2020

    Join us over three fun-filled days showcasing local innovation and stimulating ideas and action in the fields of science and sustainability in central Australia. For the past 12 years, the desertSMART Ecofair has been a vibrant showcase of science and sustainability in central Australia as part of National Science Week. The 2020 Ecofair, August 7-9, will be held in outside venues across Alice Springs including the Olive Pink Botanic Gardens, Alice Springs Community Garden and Desert Knowledge Precinct. This year's event will feature talks, a film night, mini-markets, in-person and online forums, garden workshops, music, kids entertainment and a science tour. Hear from leaders and innovators involved in driving local and national science and sustainability and learn about local climate solutions, the opportunities of the emerging hemp industry, bush medicine making, arid zone gardening and renewable energy. Attendees will have the chance to meet like-minded people and connect with local groups and organisations, bust buffel grass in Lhere Mparntwe and participate in walking tours of iconic Alice Springs locations. Given the unprecedented times with Covid restrictions, this year’s live talks and forums will also be going virtual.
