Katherine Marmaras is a Melbourne based multidisciplinary artist who incorporates printmaking techniques with other mediums to create works which explore the notion that art may be purely decorative.
Her work is process driven as she often finds herself losing all sense of time in the meditative process of random and repetitive mark-making.
Patterns, motifs and textures found in nature, architecture, interiors and textiles constantly inform her work. Intrinsically and instinctively motivated, she abstracts these elements to create works that are layered with textures and random marks; juxtaposing decoration and art.
Katherine is currently Artist in Residence at the Box Hill Community Arts Centre where she is working towards her next exhibition to be held in June.
Katherine’s prints and works on paper have been exhibited widely, both nationally and internationally, in select group and award exhibitions and is represented in public and private collections including the National Gallery of Australia and the Brooklyn Art Library in Brooklyn, New York.
