Marian Crawford is a highly accomplished artist. Her work exists in the spaces between academia and poetry, and writing and printmaking. ‘Pultenaea Graveolens’ is the Latin name for a Victorian shrub, captured by Crawford as thatching bulbs rearing from a silver landscape.
Crawford’s work often deals with environmental degradation and mourning; what’s lost in the processes of industrialisation and colonisation. Her work is held across public collections including at The British Library London, National Gallery of Victoria and the State Library of Victoria. In her quiet, elegant world she invites the meditate on the imprint of images, originality and loss.
