  With his haunting sculptural figures, and paintings of mythical beings floating amidst a landscape of sacred items, Zimbabwean-born artist Marc Standing continues his exploration of the tensions felt by a personal search for identity – one that is laced with the toxic traces of colonialism.

Standing uses a combination of detail-oriented and spontaneous brush work to recreate the natural world as embedded within a network of corporeality and spirituality. This liminality is evident in Standing’s sculptural practice, with his mask-like icons subsisting at the boundaries of identity, acting as mediators between the mythical world and the living.
