Day 2 of our Instagram takeover by @danijelakrha of @beautifulbizarremagazine - Danijela shares the work of Australian pop surrealism artist Marie Larkin (@marielarkin_ ), who she is working alongside as a juror for the inaugural Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Art Prize.
“I am honoured to be working alongside Marie Larkin as a Juror for the inaugural Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Art Prize. Marie’s work embodies an undeniably feminine oeuvre, meticulous execution and attention to detail. Her richly coloured, painted and drawn alternate worlds, are inhabited by her signature women who imbue her works with meaning, narrative and emotional content. In Marie’s works, her stylised female figures have become an agent for exploring notions of the feminine and what she feels it means to be a contemporary woman, diverse in nature and circumstance. She paints women of strength and character, who can at times be fantastical and otherworldly and whose undeniable feminine force has become her trademark. Her work often depicts a goddess archetype, a universal entity, rather than an individual figure. This goddess archetype draws attention to the powerful, timeless and enduring quality that women possess as a creative and nurturing force. Lately, the goddess has become armour clad, and Marie uses this as a metaphor for knowing, strength, resilience and experience." .
