Ghost Flowers and Zombie Plants

Ghost Flowers and Zombie Plants

Mark Hislop
28 March 2020 - 15 April 2020

Mark Hislop's works are developed slowly, using drawing and painting, and, more recently, spray paint on perspex, in a way that intentionally slows the process of making and looking. His current work offers a doubling or mirroring of imagery of plants and seed banks, an effect attributed to the artist's interest in analogue  photography and the basic tenets of duplication, reproduction and the positive and negative properties of film. Hislop's first solo show at Wagner Contemporary follows a successful exhibition at Cross Art Projects in 2019. His work has been selected for the Rick Amor Drawing Prize, Adelaide Perry Drawing Prize, Dobell Prize for Drawing, and, more recently, the Hazelhurst Work on Paper Award (2019) and the National Works on Paper Prize (2018).
