A move to a new city means I'm having a giant studio sale with never before seen low reserve prices! 18 original paintings are on offer so now's your chance to get a bargain. I won't be repeating this! Please see my other listings for all available work spanning current to 2008 pieces.

About the painting:
'Sea Change' was a group of portraits made from photographs gathered from a recent visit to Ellis Island, New York. I was haunted by the faces of the immigrants and appalled by the degrading inspections they had to endure after undergoing such an arduous and sometimes life threatening journey. I felt there was a strange universality to their suffering; that by being confronted by their faces on a large scale that the viewers own pain becomes magnified or at least touched on. I was interested in expressing the ideas of common experience and how we can relate to each others suffering with understanding and compassion.

About the artist:
Meredith Marsone is a contemporary artist working in oils with galleries in NZ, San Francisco, Sydney and New York.
Her subject matter centres around the figure as they move through the myriad of human experiences. Marsone's work is at once accessible and relatable but leaves the audience wondering the deeper context. She purposefully leaves this up to the mind of the viewer encouraging you to create your own narrative and meaning from the figures in their chaotic and emotive environs.
