A spinner of yarns and teller of stories, Marite is primarily a visual artist, expressing herself through the medium of collage. She is also the founder and creative director of The Art Space Collective, in Scarborough. Working in photographic art and mixed media since 2003 - in other words tearing, ripping and burning bits of her photos and gluing them into epic random artworks - she has held a number of exhibitions in Perth and Hong Kong. Expressing herself through slivers of contrasting images – the collage medium - Marite also writes poetry, reflecting something of this fragmented style. She has had poetry published in the literary magazine, Westerly.
About this event
Swim through an immersive pool of layered pop-culture imagery to a soundtrack of electronic music by the renowned C Tonkin.
Get Pasted is a site-specific art installation & exhibition by M Norris dancing the line between her dreamscapes and reality. In this hybrid of stage-set, exhibition & multi-layered mural, Marite reaches for light through the layers of collage, transforming timeworn images and bringing them new life.
Responding to the venue's architecture & by playing with collaged manifestations, printed fabrics, & wallpapers, Marite weaves through feelings of the comforting ambience of home. The exhibition offers a tactile alternative to an ever-fluid image world, grounding people, & reminding them of texture, detail, & reality.
