New dates for this exhibition is the 1 March 2021

Marijke's third exhibition in Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens, a temporary “swarming” to The Calyx

In this exhibition the artist has used a medium, called encaustic; the artist captures the vast Australian landscape in a truly unique way – from ancient and majestic rocks, vast plains and aerial views to the dancing and turbulent seas of our coastline. The works reflect her extensive travels throughout this amazing country.

Encaustic medium involves fusing layers upon layers of beeswax (mixed with natural resin and pigment) with a high heat source.  Other materials such as dyed silk and found objects such as shells, stones and leaves can be incorporated into this medium.

This medium provides the viewer with a truly sensory experience. The multiple layers gives works a luminous, ethereal quality, which retain the beautiful aroma of beeswax.  These works can be safely touched, to feel the texture involved (from the smooth wax, to roughness of incorporated materials) and is waterproof.

All works are framed
