Ocean Warrior comes as a response to the exhibition theme Mermay. My warrior goddess series explore the spirit, nature and persona of woman. Through my imagery I attempt to show that elements of a goddess archetype are present in the everyday feminine. My work seeks to inspire women to find this within the everyday, by depicting them as archetypes that are larger than life, extraordinary and not necessarily from this world.
Marie Larkin is an Australian Pop Surrealist. Her art embodies an undeniably feminine oeuvre, meticulous execution and attention to detail. Works in painting, drawing and sculpture have been inspired by fairytale and nursery rhyme narratives, pop culture, beauty and the feminine persona.. She creates richly coloured, finely detailed, alternate worlds inhabited by beautiful girls, strange and mesmerising, with expressive eyes and dark natures. Most recently, female characters have an undeniable feminine force, strong, empowered and aloof. Her bodies of work continue to mature, gaining greater sophistication of style and consistency throughout.. Paintings and drawings retain her signature women who embue the works with narrative and emotional content.
Marie Larkin has a Bachelor of Art Education and has been a visual artist and art teacher since 1980. She gained national recognition and success in the 1990’s as an embroiderer.
