Mary-Jean Richardson

Head of Painting (On leave)


Mary-Jean Richardson is a South Australian based artist whose practice is specifically motivated by the interplay of traditions and transgression via painting’s mobility, mutability and capacity for reinvention.

Mary-Jean completed a Masters of Visual Art at the School of Art, Architecture and Design, University of South Australia, researching the legacy of eighteenth century Gothic literary conventions within the ‘undead’ state of contemporary painting.

She has received various awards and grants to further her research and practice, including the AEAF Studio Residency at the British School at Rome in 2013. She is Painting Department Head at Adelaide Central School of Art and actively exhibits locally and nationally, including projects at Greenaway Gallery, CACSA, SASA Gallery, The Jam Factory and Fontanelle Gallery. 

We acknowledge the traditional owners and custodians of country throughout Australia and acknowledge their continuing connection to land, water and community.

We pay our respects to the people, the cultures and the elders past, present and emerging.
