Soft Pastel on Paper
A6 (10x15cm) original artwork

Mary’s work is an intuitive exploration of memory and sensation. Working at the intersection of drawing and painting, she creates subtle and enigmatic works which oscillate between the recognised and the unknown. Her current work is a series of small, dream-like pastel drawings formed of a composite of feelings, lived-sensation, unconscious processes and observation.
Mary studied art at Goldsmiths College in London, where she developed a fascination with the materiality of the photographic image and it’s unreliability as a container of memory, and later at the Royal Drawing School where she re-connected with the physical and unconscious aspects of image making through drawing.
