CDU Art Gallery

Thursday 12 November 2015 - Friday 19 February 2016

This survey exhibition is a gaze into the wondrous art of Marina Strocchi and her musings on life in the Red Centre and Top End, and other places in between.

The art of Marina Strocchi propels us on a journey of the Northern Territory. Her paintings and prints are laden with iconic motifs of jabiru,fish, windmills, buffalo, feral cats, mangroves and mulga. Renditions that trace human activity, such as mining, travelling tracks, windmills and implements of industry, indicate the post-colonial additions to the Territory landscape.

The accompanying publication Marina Strocchi: a survey is available at the CDU Art Gallery for $50
