“Marawili offers a visual poetics that draws on the detail and beauty of the natural environment – sea spray cast by waves crashing on rocks, the dance of flames, the flicker of a snake’s tongue, lightning flashing across the sky. These details reflect a life lived with close attention to the natural world and its instances of fleeting (as well as enduring) natural beauty”.
