Ones to Watch: Mary Ann Santin

THE ART EDIT TEAM PRESENTS THE ARTISTS ON ITS RADAR RIGHT NOW.

If you live in Adelaide, you may have noticed public art commissions popping up in spaces such as the State Library of South Australia, Adelaide Airport and throughout the Adelaide City precinct. Present in all of these locations is the work of multidisciplinary artist Mary Ann Santin, whose industry reputation has grown at rapid pace since she graduated from a Masters in Visual Art at the University of South Australia earlier this year. Aside from a number of high-profile public commissions, the artist has been working privately to pioneer unconventional material techniques. For instance, her recent work – which is bound by themes of memory and conservation – experiments with fine layers of sulphur and copper that react with exposure to the atmosphere, with lacquer eventually applied to capture these delicate moments in time.
