Murrays Cottage

Scott Marr has been exploring the traditional art of Pyrography for the past seven years. Inspired by the designs and patterns of the natural world, Marr creates textures, grooves and tactile sensations on paper and wood using traditional burning techniques. The addition of pigments sourced from sap, moss, bark, leaves, ochres and charcoal imbue Marr’s works with elements of the environment itself. During his time in Hill End, Marr aims to investigate the textures of human impacts on the environment, especially the effects of mining and to investigate the notion of ‘ambiguity as realism”.
