MARS Gallery is delighted to announce new representation of artist Miranda Hine!
Hine’s painting practice explores forms of personal documentation, cataloguing, ordering and ambiguous narrative construction that aligns with her museums research. With a background in sculpture, video and installation, her current practice centres on painting. Drawing inspiration from her curatorial practice, Hine investigates notions of categorisation in her dreamy paintings, exploring common themes through a lens of art history and museum theory, and questioning boundaries of objective truth and personal interpretation.
Along with being a 2022 recipient of the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship Kangaroo Valley residency, Hine was a finalist in the 2023 Wynne Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, and was awarded highly commended in the 2023 STILL: National Still Life Award.
“At a moment in contemporary art where large, gestural painting is king, I was immediately struck by how refreshing Miranda Hine’s paintings are. Miranda is carving a place for herself as an artist, creating timeless paintings that hark back to the old masters with a fresh, contemporary twist. Her work will stand the test of time as a reflection of our lives, and I am excited to watch Miranda continue growing and pushing boundaries as an artist.” – Andy Dinan, Director of MARS Gallery
MARS will present Hine’s first solo exhibition in Melbourne in May 2024. Before then, new works will be available in the online Christmas Catalogue launching on the 1st of December!
