Michele Zarro, ‘Suitcases 00' , 2005, mixed media installation, 1.8m X 2.5m (detail)
"She has (Zarro), quite brilliantly, taken the immediacy of her early obsessive, repetitive mark-making in overly thick wax media oil paint and translated it into the expanded field of a highly conceptualised practice. Now we find her an eccentric collector of found materials and objects, performing the morphology of materiality in shifting designating and placement of meaning, under the uncompromising glare of the gallery lights, bare walls and a Balmain Rentals truck of stuff outside, with four days to work with. What a palette!"
Michele completed her undergraduate studies at Southern Cross University in Lismore before coming to Sydney. She was awarded 1st class honours in 2003 and completed a MVA at Sydney College of the Arts in 2005. She is currently a PhD candidate at Sydney College of Arts. Michele maintains a strong exhibition practice both locally and overseas; she was a finalist last year for the Ripe: Art & Australia/ANZ Private Bank Contemporary Award and is a finalist this year in the Helen Lempriere Travelling Scholarship
