Marina Strocchi’s Coffee Pot is one of Northern Editions’ more quirky and playful prints.
Reminiscent of the modernist woodcuts of Margaret Preston with its clean decorative
approach, this black and white etching represents a famed commodity - liquid gold - that is
desired the world over. Indeed, during the two-week-long workshop undertaken with Marina
and her partner Wayne Eager at Northern Editions in December 2006, the coffee pot was
perpetually on the boil and the resulting print homage to their recent travels in Italy.
Born in Melbourne in 1961, Marina Strocchi received her Bachelor of Arts from Swinburne
University in 1982. Marina spent her formative years living, working, and travelling abroad,
and worked as a community artist in Melbourne before moving to Central Australia in early
1992. She was invited later that year to establish Ikuntji Art Centre at Haasts Bluff, west of
Alice Springs, and was the founding coordinator for nearly six years. Since then, Marina
has lived in Alice Springs with her partner Wayne Eager where they both work as full-time
artists from their home-based studios.
