For centuries, even millennia, travelling fairs and circuses have roamed the world and become part of our collective imagination. Loaded with symbolism and metaphor, they bring us wondrous encounters with the mysterious. Circus brings together this imagery on an intimate scale with beautifully executed studies of iconic fairground imagery and their characters, full of symbolism, humour and melancholy. Throughout his career, Mark Ogge has used this iconography to create a rich imaginative landscape. Much of this has been for large commissions including work for international Spiegeltents and Luna Park in Melbourne.
