Marika Smart’s work is about family and community. It simultaneously represents safety and vulnerability, which is why we see the fence behind the houses at the lake in Summer Is A Dream of Colour, Imagination, and Lights. Smart is also an actor and recently played Persephone. In Persephone, Spring Is Here, the character is hiding on the other side of the tree. Smart has experienced Persephone’s vulnerability as she hides from her captor. She was also saved, and believes that spring is inside all of us even if it is hidden from sight.
