WHEN : 22nd Oct 2-4pm
WHERE : Jan Manton Art, 1/93 Fortescue St, Spring Hill QLD.
To be opened by Kirsti Simpson, Director of Hassell, with artist talk by Marion Borgelt
Marion Borgelt draws inspiration from subjects such as semiotics, language and phenomenology to create atavistic fantasies and mysteries in the forms of painting, sculpture and installation. Her work suggests connections between culture and nature, between the constructed world and the organic world, between microcosm and macrocosm and the duality of light and dark.
A lexicon of symbols and motifs, at once universal and personal, distinguishes the imagery of Borgelt’s work. Drawing on experience with a wide range of materials, including bees-wax, canvas, felt, pigment, stainless steel, wood, stone and organic matter, she hones her ideas to the demands of a given site, mediating the creative intervention with originality and sensitivity.
