Marcie o'neill artist


Marcie lives and works on Bundjalung Country/ Byron Bay Shire.

Marcie is a Sculptor, Painter and Performance artist.

Marcie has exhibited and performed around the world including spoken word performances with members of the Australian Chamber Orchestra, traditional Taiko drummers in Tokyo as well as performances in New York and Thailand.

The creative process for Marcie is the same across all mediums. That is distilling from the white noise and static of life, meaningful narrative and symbolism, so that we might find some order in chaos.

Marcie’s art is an attempt to map our existential landscape and to describe how we project ourselves upon it.

His works are rickety bridges between the conscious and unconscious mind. They describe the fragile construct in which we vibrate between happiness and sadness and how we reconcile the moments and memories that connect the two.

He is attracted to the intangible esoteric nature of the human experience, as it demands intellect, abstraction, sensitivity and sometimes brutality to reconcile.

In this light it is possible to see the horror in beauty and the beauty in decay.

He is by his own admission , a happy but worried person.
