Absinthe Archway

Absinthe Archway

The Absinthe archway design was used as a decorative entrance for the original season of Spiegelworld’s Absinthe at the Fish Markets in New York in 2006.

It was designed to reflect the seafaring spirit of the New York harbour setting, complete with Poseidon, a mermaid and merman, giant kracken and vaudeville performers.

Melbourne artist Mark Ogge lives and works in an old church in Clunes, in country Victoria. He was the first artist commissioned by Spiegelworld, creating an entrance archway mural in 2006. Mark has long been fascinated by the iconography of the circus and fairground, exploring the dichotomy between enchantment and disillusionment.
