Originally from Basel in Switzerland, Claudine Marzik migrated to Cairns in 1988 and as a real Swiss turning a true blue she has stayed in the Far North. She lives, works and creates art from her homebase in Cairns. "As a young artist, I already had a great interest in the arts in Basel, however the inspiration that the new environment of Australia offered artistically, was to be discovered in depth, over many years here." Claudine's work is in major public and private collections including the Artbank Australia collection. She has held major exhibitions within Australia and overseas and has been a finalist and winner of a number of art awards. She’s best known for her large abstract works influenced by Queensland’s unique and distinctive landscape. The recent screenprints presented in this exhibition reduce the atmosphere of Australian native forrests surrounding Cairns, Savannah and Tablelands to their most elemental forms.
