Maree Faulkner’s vibrant, complex imagery reflects ongoing struggles both personal and collective, where there was always plenty of something coming out of nothing. Colours pulsing with life-force and rascal intent. Skewed jagged lines melding figuration and abstraction, where the smallest scribble, tracing politics and heart, becomes the gentle art of gift-giving. 

Showcasing decades of creativity: from rarely seen early work, to dolly making and activist projects, writings, postcards, autobiographical characters like Poor​ Beggar and Nutter, and the celebrated larger scale gouaches of later years.
