Pamela Easton by Marisa Veerman
Marisa Veerman is a Brisbane based mixed media artist. Her work is recognised for its ethereal, emotive quality and her technique is unusual, fusing opaque, flowing, photographic images with embroidery and painterly wax. With sensitivity to her subject evident, Veerman’s purpose is to make visible the abstract human emotion as the viewer is invited to draw upon a closeness between the work and themselves. She effectively uses space and colour to give her works a quiet stillness. Veerman has exhibited her work across galleries in Australia and has recently been awarded the prize for ‘Best Mixed Media’ artwork at the Rotary Art Spectacular in Brisbane. The artist is represented by Lethbridge Gallery.
