About

Marco Bio ImageMarco Corsini (b. Wangaratta, Australia, 1969) is a Melbourne based artist. He is currently the Director of Melbourne Art Class.

Marco Corsini’s paintings feature the landscape and his immediate environment. Using shifts in viewpoint and perspective and often painted over extended periods of time, the works explore perception and the nature of painting as a recorder of experience rather than as a representative tool. Alongside a phenomenological interest in consciousness and experience, Marco’s work also incorporates personal motifs such as the horse, indicating the artist’s own presence. The paintings explore perception and subjectivity, asking us to go beyond everyday discourse into deeper engagement with the nature of our existence.

    Would love to know a bit more about your Art Program Marco – I’ve done quite a lot of studio drawing in the last couple of years but would be good to get back outside. Sometimes making this happen is a bit hard so perhaps coming along with some other folk might be better :>

      Thanks. For some aspects of the textures, wet on wet works well and is quite effective. As the larger paintings take some time, much of the painting is done wet on dry though.

    I have had a quick look through several of your posts and am most impressed with your work. The balance and detail is excellent. You say you are interested in the space, but there is a spiritual aspect to your pictures that I like immensely. Thankyou for visiting my blog, Tony

      Thanks Tony. I think a lot about how to represent some sort of spirituality but have felt that it eludes me. It was very encouraging to read your comment.

        I’m sure you have looked at Paul Cezanne still life paintings (e.g. Still Life with Compotier – Hogg Art Museum, Harvard) the perspective is all over the place, the planes don;t line up, the plates are falling over at impossible angles, and yet… and yet… they hang together so beautifully, they give the observer a zing. This is spiritual. and this is where you are coming from in many paintings. Keep it up. Tony
