Exhibitions    From the Hive Swarming to the Palm House, Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens

01.08.17 to 17.08.17

Marijke's first exhibition in Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens, a temporary “swarming” to a new site in the Palm House. 

This is Marijke’s fifth encaustic exhibition.  She is experienced across a range of painting, mixed media and silk dying techniques and is excited to be able to combine these with the encaustic medium.  Paper, rust, shellac burn, dyed silk, image transfer and natural materials (including shells, leaves and seaweed) are incorporated into many of her encaustic paintings. 

Marijke’s studio is in Canberra and is affectionately referred to as “The Hive”.  This is a tribute to the bees whose wax makes her work possible, and the notion of a hive being a centre of creative industry.  The collection of works for sale at the Palm House reflects scenes from the Australian outback and coastal waters, as well as stylised and semi‑abstract studies of flora and fauna.

All works are framed
