In Retrograde (meaning going back in a position or time), Marais explores the openness and vastness of landscape painting in a series of six monotypes with accompanying ghost-prints. "We often stare into the distance with thoughts and emotions about the past, present and future and this is often accompanied by a meditative sense of deja vu (already seen) and jamais vu (never seen)."
"The ghost-prints literally have a more ghost-like appearance, which I love. They remind me of faded photographs or memories that fade with time, making way for new beginnings." Eugenie Marais, 2017
