The Biennale of Australian Art

Mara Lythgo

Mara Lythgo is a young expressive artist from the serene coastal environment of Apollo Bay, in Victoria. She studied her Bachelor in Fine Art (painting) at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and then went on to complete her honours at Sydney College of the Arts.
The use of a pyrographic tool to burn images into paper and wooden surfaces creates unique artworks with interesting subject matter. This medium has seen her branch out into a number of different object practices including; jewellery and light boxes.
