Pinewood Sculpture 2 by Mark Alsweiler

Life Within unites the works of Mark Alsweiler (NZ), Sandra Eterovic and Kasper Raglus in rumination on life's little details. Inspired by objects, daily rituals and observations Life Within creates an opportunity to explore what drives individual philosophies, identities and the meaning of it all through the diverse and lasting medium of paint.

Seen through the lens of each artist's practice viewers are encouraged to consider art's interpretation of life and in turn the role it plays creating those meanings. Mark's work is quintessentially happy and intentionally so! The paintings are comprised of life-inspired scenes and create a romanticised version of every day living. His wooden sculptures extend from the characters in his paintings, building on their narratives within a three-dimensional context.
