Marina Strocchi

b. 1961

Alice Springs based painter and printmaker Marina Strocchi’s works incorporate the dynamic ‘Roar’ collective aesthetic, indigenous landscape influences and rural Australian narratives. Strocchi was the founding co-ordinator of the Ikuntji Art Centre from 1992 to 1997 and has also mentored at art centres in the Northern Territory. She has held 25 solo exhibitions throughout Australia and also in the United States. In 2010 Strocchi was a finalist in the Wynne Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Strocchi is represented in the Art Gallery of Western Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria as well as Artbank and several regional collections. In 2019 she was awarded a $50,000 Northern Territory Arts Fellowship, which enabled her to undertake a sustained period of professional development in New York.
