Sea Foam Spritz, Original Artwork by Rowena Martinich

Renowned for her use of radiant colour, Martinich’s vibrant abstract expressionist paintings can be seen within a multitude of architectural contexts; embellishing foyers, commercial interiors, entire building facades, transitory spaces as well as invigorating residential interiors.

Through her prolific output Martinich has created recognisable works that have graced many buildings throughout Australia, as well as internationally including major public art projects in Istanbul, Turkey, Xian Yang, China, and residencies and exhibitions in Prato, Italy and Lyon, France. Closer to home, Martinich has injected life and colour into city centres as well as into regional Australia, completing large-scale murals in otherwise isolated communities.

Working as a professional in her field, Martinich has aligned herself with leading brands and has worked collaboratively with companies such as Dulux and Mecca Cosmetica, activating their product through her ability to work with colour. It has also seen her create a line of exclusive products for the National Gallery of Victoria with her husband, artist Geoffrey Carran. Martinich has also collaborated with some of Australia’s leading architects to directly inject her distinctive artwork into bespoke architectural applications. She also has a long history curating exhibitions, notably her show ‘Fluoresce Studio’ at the National Gallery of Victoria at Federation Square.
