Cook Islands | New Zealand, b 1962
Sylvia Marsters is an artist of Cook Islands origin. Her increasingly detailed flower compositions merge fantasy and reality as they confront Polynesian diaspora, perceptions of Island folklore and lost family connections.
With an extensive exhibition history throughout Auckland and Rarotonga, Marsters work has also been exhibited in Zurich and New York. Her paintings are included in the collection of the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) and the Cook Islands National Museum.
Sylvia is represented by Bergman Gallery, Rarotonga.
