I’ve been into Star Wars ever since I was a little kid.

28 Oct - 4 Nov 2021

I’ve been into Star Wars ever since I was a little kid… My dad would take me to the movies when each film of the original trilogy would come out. Collecting the figurines was the next best thing to being Luke or Han for me. My friends and I used to take them to school and play with them at lunchtime in the sandy dirt. 

My kids grew up with me introducing them to the Star Wars films just like my dad did with me. They like the new movies best but The Empire Strikes back is my favourite.

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. His practice explores the icons of coming to age in the 1980s and the 1990s, with references to quintessential moments of the decade like Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Freddy Krueger, old-school video game aesthetics and boom-boxes.

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.
