In this workshop, Marikit will guide you through the process of creating a portrait using a combination of traditional portrait techniques and expressive marks while considering what symbols, imagery and other visual cues will articulate a visual narrative of your portrait. Using images as references and a range of media, Marikit will assist with technical and creative methods to construct a portrait of personal significance.
Marikit lives and works in Western Sydney where her practice investigates a personal conflict of cultural plurality at the conjunction of Filipino ethnicity and Australian nationality. Her work reflects the interweaving cultures of her ethnic and social identity.
Marikit was selected as finalist in the Archibald Prize in 2016 and 2021 and was the winner of the Sulman Prize in 2020. She is currently a finalist in the 2021 Sulman Prize.
If purchasing tickets on behalf of other attendees, the ticket purchaser is responsible for communicating all correspondence from the Art Gallery Society of NSW to those attendees.
Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, this workshop which was scheduled for Sunday 27 July, will now take place on Sunday 5 September
