Marek Herburt creates vibrant impressionistic, semi-abstracted landscapes, typically of the Australian Bushland. Herburt’s deliberately limited range of high-keyed colours show his continuing fascination with light and its effect on colour and forms. His work more and more reflects an
Australian sensibility of the effect of light on the environment where the colours are bleached and where what happens in the spaces between forms is as important as the forms themselves. Originally from Poland, Herburt studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Lodz. Herburt immigrated to Australia in 1982, he has lived in Mid-North South Australia since 2001. He is the winner of the winner of the 2016 Cossack landscape prize. 2016 and 2012 Port Lincoln Art Prize and the 2012 Port Pirie prize.
