Scott Marsh 'Savoir Faire' Exhibition - Sydney
Sydney based artist Scott Marsh present a new series that looks at exploring the growing cross over between graffiti and high art. Marsh drew inspiration from Manet’s ‘Luncheon on the Grass’ and ‘Olympia’. Presenting 20 new works, Marsh pairs the raw energy, and fluid precision of contemporary street culture with the classical notion of the female nude.
The women depicted in Marsh’s paintings, emulate the gaze of Manet's Olympia; brazenly staring at the viewer. Marsh utilises this comparison to question the acceptance of graffiti techniques within the fine art world. Marsh layers elements of impressionism and pop art with the palette and uses scale techniques associated with graffiti.
Savoir Faire will be available for preview viewings from Monday 15th June (2pm – 4pm) and Tuesday 16th June (1pm – 4pm) with closing night happening on Wednesday 17th June at 7pm at Goodspace which is located at Level 1, 115 Regent St, Chippendale, NSW.
