Back to where we started
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.
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 drawing reflect and celebrate the natural environment, though often in abstract form.
Mark Ward is represented in the National Gallery of Australia, the NSW State Parliament collection, and in regional galleries and private collections in Australia and overseas. He has exhibited continuously since 1968, including 14 solo shows.
Mirabel Fitzgerald has exhibited in Australia, Europe and the United Kingdom, Thailand and China and her work is held in private and public collections including the National Gallery of Australia and the Art Gallery of NSW.
