Michael Marzik is an Austrian photographer, born in Switzerland and based in Cairns. He has worked as an arts administrator, curator and regularly documents artworks for fellow artists. His photographic practice invites contemplation and various interpretations of a subject, whether it be person on scene. He has an innate ability to capture the essence of an individual through portraiture and has photographed many of the artists practicing in Cairns over the last two decades. Photographic prints in this exhibition, from the alluring series Überfluss, a German word meaning abundance or glut, are vignettes of kitchen detritus and implore the viewer to consider consumption.
