The Yarra Valley
- Marina Strocchi

Marina Strocchi’s distinct and beautifully refined visual language is characterised by streamlined forms and a vibrant colour palette. Hovering between abstraction and landscape, her works are rich evocations of the magnificence of the natural world.‘My work is an intuitive response to nature and the built environment. I live outside the city; for twenty-nine years in the Central Desert and now, since April 2021, in the Wurundjeri/ Yarra Valley area. I attempt to activate the feeling of being in the natural world, deconstructing the landscape, challenging the human-centered viewpoint of nature.Through layering and linework, my aim is to create a form of ‘spacial’ harmony; a place of refuge, as nature does. My work responds to the brilliant glare of the Australian light. I use the irregularities and patterns of a world where nature is the major stakeholder.
This series references the vistas we drive past on the way to the shed in Healesville. We pass the many wineries and market gardens that create a raked landscape, delineated by fences and pockets of bush.’ – Marina Strocchi, 2023
