Oasis by Marcus Tatton

/ / waterlines

Land Art Installation with Locally Sourced Firewood

Marcus Tatton’s practice delves into the intricate dynamics between the natural world and human thought environments, probing profound connections between humanity and nature. Tatton explores the impacts of human interaction on landscape, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in how we shape the world around us.

“Oasis” stands as an effigy to our collective aspirational mind. Within a woody canopy, a continual ebb of water droplets and environs of grey whacky rock, we are met with a place of serenity and refuge.

Yet this space interrogates our causal accumulations and questions how our thoughts and treatments of native forests, and of water, reflect back to our wider humanity.

About Marcus Tatton

Marcus is a public space sculptor working around Australia and New Zealand. Versatile in his processes and media, Marcus creates unique sculpture interventions to mark contemporary attitudes and experiences. Much of his practice is creating one off works for exhibition in national sculpture forums. Living in the quiets of remote Tasmania, Tatton holds a fringe perspective on humanity. It takes form both as a personal politic, of how we individual humans interact with nature, and as a world politic concerning the cumulative effect our species imparts upon ground.
