The Long Life Series
Utilizing the collagraph printmaking technique, Mary creates hybrid works which are constructed over extended periods of many months. Her practice suggests a never-ending, natural cycle in which the potential finished product, a print, becomes a paper matrix for subsequent pieces. Through multiple repetitions of this process combined with cutting, layering, and continuous re-printing, Mary creates intricate collages. Infinitely complex structures reminiscent of weathered maps, satellite views or archeological excavations.
