Marikit Santiago: For Us Sinners (Artist COMP) 4A
Published to coincide with Marikit Santiago’s 2022 solo exhibition, For us sinners, this new book encapsulates the Australian-Filipina artist’s creative process for the new suite of works–from conception to fruition. For us sinners provides an intimate insight into the gestation of Marikit’s first institutional exhibition, and comprises painting studies, concept sketches, and diary entries that explore ancestral Filipino myths, motherhood, dualities, and animalia folklore.
Shimmering in gold slivers, For us sinners is designed by Garry Trinh and features commissioned essays by exhibition curator Micheal Do, writer Mariela Summerhays, and 4A Artistic Director/CEO Amrit Gill.
Limited edition, available exclusively at 4A for AUD $35 RRP.
