Simple line drawings by Marise Maas
Marise Maas is a Melbourne-based artist whose beautiful paintings explore what she calls the ‘remarkable mundane’. Her work takes inspiration from ordinary and everyday things, because ‘if you look closely at the smaller detail, you find bigger stories’. You can found a childlike wonder and naivete in Marise’s work. Her line drawings are so simple and restrained, yet are rich with symbolism and subliminal meaning, which stem from Marise’s unique ‘accidental-on-purpose’ approach to image composition!
