Exhibitions    Swarming to The Calyx in the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney 2022

04.04.22 to 24.04.22

Exhibition at The Calyx from 4 to 24 April 2022.

This is Marijke's fourth exhibition in Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney a temporary “swarming” to The Calyx. 

Experience the rich, luminous and ethereal qualities of encaustic paintings – created by fusing layers of beeswax, natural resin and pigment with a high heat source.  The exhibition is a truly sensory experience of sight, touch and smell.  These works capture the diversity of the Australian landscape – from the trees to the sea, with the outback in between.  Trees represent life and growth; sentries standing tall and still, silently watching over humankind.  The ocean is a powerful, dynamic force – always moving, like a dancer expressing the full range of human emotion, and the vivid colours of the Australian outback reveal a beauty within the harsh environment.

All works are framed
