Art Works by Rory Marchant

My art practice revolves around the many ways an image can be merged. I love the chaos and order of using collage to turn simple images into more complicated works, they are like small pieces of a story coming together to create a larger whole.  

My digital works started as merging photos I was able to take on rare excursions outside during lock down. I kept wanting to turn the corner into an alleyway and see a great or magical landmark I’d never seen because of the feelings brought on by being unable to travel far, I took photos on my phone to build new places that are the sort of thing you’d stumble into in a mirage in some faraway place but have an odd familiarity because they are pieces from our local landscape.  

 I love experimenting with different mediums and techniques, my other collage drawings are different examples of these.

The Art of Swimming: Simone Tippett & Sue Ninham

In the year of Covid Simone Tippett and Sue Ninham started open ocean swimming together one wintery, Sunday morning. The icy sea, air and fear momentarily snapped them out of the funk they were fighting. Every swim was different. Colour and light. Tidal currents. Sound, smell and swell. Creatures, large and small. With ongoing weekly swims the funk has faded, wetsuits are closeted and creativity fizzes, swishes and flows. 

This exhibition is a celebration of beauty found in the ocean, friendship and art.
