Mark Strizic is among Australia’s most renowned photographers. A European immigrant, he had an early interest in painting and science, resolving himself in 1957 to become a photographer. He was the first photographic artist to be awarded a solo exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria and first photographer to be acquired by the National Gallery of Australia.

Strizic’s photographic practice hinges on tensions: natural and man-made; old and new; modern and traditional. ‘Return To The Molecular State’, experimental in form, sees a female figure emanate from a window. The effect is psychedelic, a dreamlike evocation of our consciousness. Strizic, an early adopter of digital imaging, crops, distorts and enlargens framgents to create another realm.

Strizic was honoured with a retrospective exhibition in 2004 at Old Parliament House. Immersed in the echelons of Australian art and architecture, his photography is not only thought-provoking, but a window into the country’s creative history. For collectors of experimental photography, ‘Return To The Molecular State’ is a wonderful find.
