Radiate is a survey exhibition of the past 20+ years of practice for internationally acclaimed artist Donna Marcus.

In this exhibition, Marcus threads familial connection with conceptual and historical underpinnings from marine salvaging in the early 1900s to themes of memory, minimalism, and geometry. A once long-term resident of the Gold Coast Hinterland, Marcus is a dedicated collector of domestic materials that she uses to explore the formal properties of composition, form, and pattern.

 

Donna Marcus is best known for her collected discarded aluminium kitchenware with original uses in post-war kitchens, recalled and extended by the process of assemblage.Marcus’ work has been exhibited extensively both within Australia and internationally, appearing in major sculpture survey and award exhibitions at institutions such as the Museum of Art and Design, New York, and the National Gallery of Australia.

Her work including a large suite of permanent public artworks, is held in numerous public and private collections nationally and internationally and has been the subject of several scholarly and journalistic publications.
