Nic Macalari

Nic Malacari is a multidisciplinary artist whose work explores various themes of humanities’ malignant mistakes and misfortunes. Malacari investigates various empires, sects and cults and analyzes the symbolism and the dogmas that they used to control their followers. Looking at various fragments in history, Malacari places points of time side by side playing with the composition of humanities’ errors. Nic sees that this juncture of symbolism contrasts in humanities’ malevolence which resolves to one’s own return to nature. Creating such symbolism in the context of the present reveals the repetition of error in humanity – same mistakes, new histories. Utilising oil paints, forming sculptures and collaborating with sound, Malacari uses these mediums to resolve ideas to the visual. Malacari grew up in Fremantle, Western Australia and is currently based in Melbourne.
