Marina Rendle

Moving across several disciplines and using a broad range of materials from bone, vellum, horsehair and taxidermy to natural fibres, textiles, metals and resin, work is always underpinned by detailed drawings and colour work. It is rooted in a deep life-long interest in natural history and in religious and cultural symbolism and iconography.

 

Although much of the subject matter and materials used, by today's sensibilities, can be viewed as macabre the work is never about death but is concerned with transience, ambiguity, structure and finding beauty in the unexpected.

 

Materials include: Salvaged bone, road kill, recycled taxidermy, beads, textiles and fabrics, metals, sourced and found objects, ink, pen, paint, resin, feathers and plaster.
