At Home - Marina Strocchi

At Home is a selection of recent works by Marina Strocchi. These works are playful, abstracted configurations in the traditional still life genre. As with her depictions of the Central Australian desert landscape (inhabited and uninhabited) you find in them the flattened perspective and the desert palette. The subject matter however, is the intimate collateral ephemera of her everyday life at home. The airy tangle of objects float in a plane that is deceptively structured yet threatens to expand to the forever, as do her landscapes. Here in the still lives the small objects are writ large, which is a contrast to the landscapes where the expansive depictions are formed through the minutia of the desert flora and fauna.
