Marc Standing is a Zimbabwean-born artist known for his magical realist paintings. Marc’s work explores the tensions involved in the search for identity - particularly in a postcolonial context. These are tensions between light and dark, comfort and discomfort, the sense of belonging and the sense of a void. The artist’s canvases are rich with meaning and we love their interplay of symbol, colour and pattern.
Marc trained at the University…Show more of Cape Town, South Africa. He has lived and worked in Australia, Hong Kong and London. The travel-hungry artist is currently doing a residency in the Maldives and plans to do another in the Philippines thereafter.
