Marissa Maree is an Australian artist, living in the Central West, NSW. Studying Photo Media at the Australian National University, she developed an affinity for human gestures and the familiarity. Marissa Maree connects in every sense to her Italian heritage, particularly family gatherings which centre around food and associated traditions. She honours her culture through a balance of whimsical yet composed mindfulness in her painting practice. A salient feature of her works are the gestural applications of acrylic as a means of playing with different sensations of stimulated memory through vision and tactility.
