Description

Marc Standing was born in Harare, Zimbabwe, in 1976. He gained a Bachelor of Fine Arts, with a major in painting, from the University of Cape Town, South Africa, in 1999. In 2005 he emigrated to Australia, becoming an Australian citizen in 2007, and also now lives in Hong Kong. The subject matter in Standing’s practice is drawn from personal experience and touches upon themes relating to identity, displacement and human fragility. The subject matter in Natural Wonder is taken from the natural world. Standing shows how birds, seeds, nests as well as other elements collide in a ‘cascade of colour’ and by doing so acknowledges the beauty of nature. Standing has exhibited extensively throughout Australia, as well as in South Africa, The Netherlands, New York and Hong Kong.
