In her latest body of work, Stacey Mrmacovski brings together a series of paintings which are an exploration in finding a sense of place amongst her experience of the landscape. Inspired by the unkept and untamed, the peaceful and serene, with each stroke of paint there is a solace to be discovered, a memory, a moment.
"When interpreting the landscapes that surround me through my work, I like to cancel out the unnecessary noise and look at the beauty in its raw form, contrast and texture - all elements which I like to highlight in my paintings and that bring me a moment of solace, a sense of place and somewhere to escape to that is familiar, yet also unknown, much like life itself."
