Still Life with Domestic Appliance, 2021 - Marisha Matthews (she/her)

  • Sold Out


Oils on linen 120 x 90 cm

This work addresses the use of the female body as a domestic appliance. It is through female reproductive labour that all other human capacities are achieved. When the years of motherhood are not gaps on a CV and missing superannuation, then we will know that reproductive work is recognised.

Marisha is an Adelaide based artist, specialising in oils on canvas or linen. Her current focus is still life painting that explores light, reflection and refraction. In contrast to much still life painting, she prefers the overhead view. ⁣
