Fluro lights up the Market
A large scale fluorescent artwork has been installed at the front entrance to the Market. The artwork is by Rowena Martinich who has used glass as her canvas in a unique installation designed to enliven this pedestrian corridor. This exciting new contemporary artwork called 'Chromablitz' features Martinich's trademark use of fluorescent colour and random marks. Her work is painted onto film and fixed to glass windows and doors giving a burst of implusive energy and bright luminous colour. Martinich has a Master of Art in Public Spaces and has also completed an artists residence at the National Gallery of Victoria. Her work has been presented in Melbourne, Italy, France, Turkey and China.
