Marika Borlase

Marika Borlase's artwork draws on her interest in expanding the visual language and narrative found in natural history paintings and the landscape around her. In addition to her own store of cultural memories, Marika likes to paint an individual response to her experience of landscape. Her paintings are a fusion of abstraction and detail that embodies a sense of dreamlike other worldliness to the land she references. Each artwork may be read as an allegory and makes reference to the relationship between herself, as the artist in the studio, and the outside world.
