Congratulations Tara Marynowsky for receiving a Marten Bequest Travelling Scholarship worth $20,000. The scholarship is paid over a two year period to support the scholars in furthering their artistic careers.
Tara Marynowsky will travel widely with her scholarship funds, including to New York, where she will engage with contemporary art practices, and the UK, where she will collect Edwardian and Victorian documents and artefacts. These experiences will inform her new work, which she will commence during a four month residency at La Cité Internationale des Arts (Paris). Her overarching aim is to investigate symbolism in art and cultural belonging through African American art, French symbolism and English culture.
