    Eugenie Marais: Untitled, Inside

Beautifully atmospheric paintings of the everyday by Eugenie Marais

Posted by Rebecca Fulleylove,

Appreciating the beauty of an egg box, powder blue crockery and a bathroom sink is Eugenie Marais in her series of paintings titled, Inside. They’re intriguing because of the importance she’s given these everyday objects, making them surreal and ambiguous with a tense stillness filling each image. Simply created with oils on canvas, there’s a familiarity to her work but it’s the shadows hiding under the porcelain plates that I enjoy most – expectantly waiting for something to happen but it never does.
