About

Rita Masarin was born in Indonesia and raised on the tropical coastlines of New Guinea before migrating and settling on the Gold Coast, Australia. Developing largely as a self taught artist before studying Visual Arts at North Coast TAFE, Masarin’s work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions throughout the region.As a surfer, her relationship to the ocean serves as her primary source of inspiration. Her body of work is soaked in the Australian sublime, where dark clouds and distant downpours hang over restless seas. At once threatening and beautiful, Masarin’s seascapes capture the ephemeral nature of her surroundings with subtle nuances of colour and tone.
