THE ART, WORKSHOP AND SHOWROOM
Marny Fenton is a multi media environmental artist working primarily in wood, metal, ochre and a host of site specific hunter/gather materials. Much of her work pertains to early Australian settlement history and exudes humor and a passion which each viewer will recognize and inturpret as a result of their individual life experience.
"One's life passage, how, when and where they exist and the happenings in the wider world constantly permeate through in art".
Each ‘work’ emits a penchant for nature the elements and ‘the human condition’. The themes are universal. All Works are of common place images which evoke direct and opposing emotional responses. Hanging, standing, solid or temporal, all are executed with an instinctive passion for texture, detail and balance.
Marny has been extensively involved with Regional Galleries and Cultural Development through Community Art Projects, and served many years on various South Australian Regional Arts Boards.
She has been exhibiting professionally since the early 1970s in Victoria, NSW and South Australia.
In 1975 she founded the Clunes Museum Arts and History Centre and later in 1997 she established the Naracoorte Cultural Trust and Building to secure the Naracoorte Art Gallery a permanent home.
