New Artist Uncovered > Marc Brabander

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until July 2, 2017


Join us at this exciting exhibition that presents a great variety of art work in pen, pencil and paint created as part of a year-long, one-a-day practice. On display is a rich, complex body of work that intrigues while it unfolds the simplicity and authenticity of Marc’s creative process.

Marc says of his commitment to drawing one-a-day “I wanted to change my tune from ‘not having enough time to paint’ due to running my own business and family commitments. I wanted to consciously make time to being creative simply by doing a quick (or long) drawing a day…I believed I could actually achieve that!”

He mentions too “I decided to start on the one-a-day commitment out of a realization that I missed the connection that only creativity can provide, and the surprise that flows from staring at a blank page or canvas and seeing something come alive. And in turn I found that it energised me.”

During this year-long creative journey Marc noticed something. He says of this: “some of the drawings turned out incredibly beautiful, some of them I prefer to throw in the bin. But despite that initial feeling, I allowed the artworks to stand on their own without my judgement, and I became aware of a natural beauty within each of them. Through this I uncovered an unspoken conversation that flowed from all the artworks, and by implication, through me”.

Opening Night: 20 May (Opened by esteemed artist Peter Sesselmann)
Art After Hours: 29 June.
