Meredith Marsone (b. 1977) is a New Zealand contemporary artist working in oils. Her subject matter centres around the figure as they move through the myriad of human experiences. Marsone’s work is at once accessible and relatable but leaves the audience wondering the deeper context. She purposefully leaves this up to the mind of the viewer encouraging you to create your own narrative and meaning from the figures in their chaotic and emotive environs. Meredith has exhibited extensively throughout New Zealand and has work exhibited in Australia and New York. Meredith won first place in the Lysaght Watt Art Award 2015, was the winner of a Merit Award in the National Painting and Printmaking Award in 2008 and has been a finalist in the National Contemporary Art Award, Wallace Art Awards, Molly Morpeth Canaday Art Award, The Adam Portraiture Award, and Australia’s Agendo Art Award.
