Lives and works in Sydney

Artist's CV

Marie Mansfield’s work is observational. Whether her subject is a landscape, a person or a still life, her intention is to catch a moment that tells a story.  As a tonalist, the artist uses a subdued, limited palette to evoke an emotive response, drawing on everyday objects, situations and environments. Mansfield’s interest involves presenting a scene that implies human interaction within a landscape but without human presence. By leaving a trace of energy, Mansfield invites the viewer to interpret her often calm, melancholic or amusing narratives.  

Mansfield was awarded the Portia Geach Memorial Award in 2021. She has also been a finalist in some of Australia’s leading art prizes including the Archibald and Percival Prize as well as a multiple finalist in the Moran Prize, the Kilgour Prize, and the Shirley Hannan. In 2017, she was the recipient of the Toni Fini Artists Prize in the Black Swan. She has also been in the Mosman Art Prize, the EMSLA, STILL, NSW Parliament Plein Air Painting Prize and the Tattersalls Art Prize. Her residencies include Bundanon 2019 and The Wollemi Project 2021.
