Artist profile

Marc Etherington

Marc Etherington

Marc Etherington’s works take pop culture, childhood memories and everyday domestic life as their subject matter, rendering them through a darkly humorous and sometimes absurd lens. References to Jurassic Park, Freddy Krueger, old-school video game aesthetics and boom-boxes point to experiences of coming of age in the 1980s and 1990s, while landscapes and interiors are depicted with an eye for amusing detail.

Self-taught, Etherington has maintained a consistent practice in painting and small sculpture for over a decade and more recently has worked with larger scale sculptural installations and ceramics. His sculptural works touch on themes such as mass production and collectibles.

Etherington’s portraits of artists, Idris Murphy and his dog Wally (2019), Me and Granny (2018), Paul Williams (2017), Ken Done (2016) and Del Kathryn Barton (2015) have been finalists in the Archibald Prize at the Art Gallery NSW.  He has also exhibited in Sulman Prize (2017 and 2016) and John Fries Art Award at UNSW Art & Design. In 2015 Etherington held a solo exhibition at Hazelhurst Regional Gallery.
