Marlene Sarroff is a Sydney based artist. With a Bachelor of Art Theory from the University of New South Wales Art and Design 1991 - 94 (previously COFA) and Master of Art 2006/7 Sydney College of Art, University of Sydney Her practice extends across several disciplines including 3D Sculpture, wall works, photography, assemblage, painting, and an experimental installation practice. Exhibiting continuously over the past 25 years, with over 20 solo exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions, both in Australia and Internationally.

Experimentation is the essential element that drives the work. Using a minimal and reductive aesthetic, abstract ideas merge equally with the materials found from urban industrial environments. Taken out of their original context, and deprived of their original status, the working process is a journey of unpredictability, intuition and impulsive play. The works are reintroduced in a new context. Materials are discovered more than sourced and corrugated cardboard, bubble wrap, rubber, elastic, tape, foam board are some of the materials repurposed. The material dictates the action performed to bring the work into being. Folding, wrapping, winding, stacking, assemblage are some of the processes employed. A key element in the process is to be guided by the persuasiveness of the material and by freeing the “things” by dissociation, estranging them, removing them from their context.

365 Days: You get what you choose

To April 23
BSA Project Space
Mullumbimby NSW

An installation of 365 works created over 365 days.

Installation at Byron School of art

From 'You get what you choose', Byron School of Art.

‘The result is a culmination of a disciplined daily practice of making an artwork everyday, incorporating a multi-media process, combining Social Media, Technology and Art. Instagram is an important component in the creation of the project, the works were posted daily. Each day is different and presents a spontaneous creation pertaining to the day of the artist.

The work is made from a diverse range of found things. It is an investigation of the ordinary from the perspective of the found - be it the rejected, the disposable, the overlooked that becomes an intrinsic part of the creative process and through the method of Assemblage the work is created.’ Excerpt artist statement Marlene Sarroff 2019.
