Marina Strocchi: New York New Work

Renowned for working from surrounding natural environments, particularly the deserts of Central Australia, her home and still life, during her time spent in New York, Marina Strocchi was faced with the built environment on an incredible scale. ‘The sheer mass and density of the buildings, the repetition of shapes, the walls of windows, sometimes reflecting, sometimes receding and always towering over the mere mortals who inhabit them,’ says Strocchi.

‘New York New Works’ also features images inspired by Strocchi’s visits upstate in the contrasting natural environment of The Catskills.
