Marise Maas I
Marise Maas is originally from Utrecht but has spent a lot of time living in Australia, her work has that Australian exuberance of colour and fluid gestural marks combined with a lovely observation of the humour and the quirks of mundane daily life.
"My paintings deal with the ordinary and the everyday. Like many other artists, I’ll paint whatever has come to my attention. But it’s exploring the remarkable mundane that fascinates me most. I like to make the ‘unimportant’ important, because if you look closely at the smaller detail, you find bigger stories." Marise Mass
