Stacey Mrmacovski is an artist based in Melbourne/Wurundjeri. Inspired by the colours and lighting of the Australian landscape, her works are purely emotive with each piece one of a kind. Drawn from influences of both impressionism and expressionism, with each stroke of paint Stacey brings to life raw energy and emotion and through her process, attempts to makes sense of the world which surrounds her. There is a connection to land, whilst capturing a visceral place of internalised memory and emotion.
After painting her whole life, beginning with oils from the age of six it, was only after the birth of her first son that Stacey decided to showcase her artwork to the public.
Stacey has exhibited across Australia and Singapore and has worked closely with Interior Designers and Architects with custom commissions, including pieces for commercial and international collections. Her original artworks hang in private collections across Australia, Asia, United Arab Emirates, Europe, Canada, New Zealand and the USA.
Elizabeth Rogers for Manyung Gallery, 'Quietude Exhibition' November, 2020:
"Stacey Mrmacovski paints dark into light. Wild undercurrents of black into white.
This electrifying artist’s fascination with energy, emergence and release is laid bare on the canvas through mesmerising movement. Her brush strokes travel through fluid landscapes both real and imagined to land where raw emotion lives. A place where time stands still and
touches you with the point of a pin.
Visually and texturally thrilling, this is kinetic, visceral work from an artist who began painting with oils as a child with her grandmother. Painting is in her blood and the result of
that deep inter-generational primal connection has resulted in an exceptional body of work that investigates what lies beneath. Her work heals. Seduces. Makes your spirit sing. Pushes you out of your body, then drops you back in. Water becomes a metaphor for emotion as the blackness of below rumbles into whitecaps blending into the whitest of whites.
Influenced by Caravaggio’s incandescent work, Stacey strives for slow, purposeful perfection. With a dalliance in advertising, she now prefers to paint as much as possible on large canvasses. Settling somewhere between expressionism and impressionism, her work is
a dedication to sensory perception and existentialism.
