Mark Maurangi Carrol Australian, b. 1995

Mark Maurangi Carrol is a Sydney-based artist whose works explore personal histories and cultural memory. His works uncover universal subjects of desire, loneliness and identity, often drawing inspiration from childhood experiences in the Cook Islands and Australia.  Beginning on the reverse side, Carrol bleeds industrial oil enamels through the loom state linen as a tribute to his printmaking training and a continuation of traditional Cook Islander practices of Tīvaevae, Pāreu and Tapa.
