Haefligers Cottage

A South Australian abstract painter raised in country South Australia, Marnie Wark places great importance in the tension between line and shape, form and content, simplicity and vibrancy, resulting in a never-ending exploration of the spirit of space.

At Hill End Marnie will create paintings inspired by the words "priceless characters and gleaming rewards". Looking for inspiration in the local environment and in the romance and poetry of the landscape of story derived from the hunger for heroic endeavor, as shown by the gold miners in the 1870s and later by the group of Australian artists who spent time at Hill End.

Marnie exhibits regularly within Australia and was a selected finalist in both the 2004 Fleurieu Peninsula Biennale's Vistas Art Prize, South Australia and the Metro 5 Art Award 2005, Melbourne.
