Join Daor Contemporary on Thursday 12 March 2020 at 10am for an Artist Walkabout with Marlise Keith as she discusses her current solo exhibition Debris of a Narrative.
Marlise Keith, best known for her quirky, rich mixed-media collages, small scale sculpture (preferably referenced as 3D collages), large-scale drawings, micro-mosaics and mosaic sculpture draws on a vast collection of subject matter.
Inspired by life around her, dreams, disturbing news headlines, friends, memories, her persistent and sometimes debilitating migraines, mundanity, psychopathology, Pinterest, unarticulated thoughts and ponderings. Keith, rather than attempting to make sense of the world around her, documents its complexities and non-sense in a way that makes one feel uncomfortable, but with a smile on one’s face.
Keith’s choices of media is a juxtaposition of carefully considered found objects and materials, poked, sewn, scratched, drawn on, washed over, sanded, folded and reworked with fascinating ‘characters/ creatures emerging as a result.
Marlise Keith’s work is playful and fun but with a fascinating (and sometimes) grotesque twist. Dark and witty at the same time.
