Mark Ward + Mirabel FitzGerald | Back to where we started


Opening Hours: Tuesday – Sunday 10am – 4pm

A collaboration between work and life partners Mark Ward and Mirabel Fitzgerald, Back to where we started reflects five decades of work inspired by the south coast of NSW.

The show includes works on paper, paintings, assemblage and free-standing sculptures. Some early works are included to highlight the constant renewal found at revisited sources.

Mark Ward’s work emphasises found and repurposed materials, where three-dimensional forms become the inspiration for two-dimensional oils and linocuts. Mirabel Fitzgerald’s prints and drawings reflect and celebrate the natural environment, though often in abstract form.

The pair have been living and working permanently at Guerilla Bay: “Picking something up in the bush or on the high-tide line, our eyes meet and we each know what the other is thinking – yes, that bit of bleached blue plastic will be a cloud, a king parrot, a sleeping child.”
