Artist Statement

MARY REDMANN

For as far back as I can remember, the fusion of symmetry, free movement and organic shapes has played a very important role in my life, and this is one of the main themes that I attempt to portray in my pieces.

My style has evolved from representative to semi-abstract over the past five years, as I find myself yearning for a more unrestricted way of creating. This happened partly in conjunction with my introduction to a popular art method, Vedic Art. What I learned helped me in allowing myself to start a piece without focusing so much on what the end-result will be, and instead fully experience the creative process as every new brush stroke or section takes form. My most enjoyable moments as an artist happen when I let my art develop organically.

Though I am constantly experimenting with various materials, my paintings are divided mainly into two groups: resin and acrylic. As a fluid medium, resin has a mind of its own and continues to move for over an hour after I put my tools up. This plays well to my desire for freedom in creation. Acrylic, on the other hand, allows a more controlled execution, providing a contrast that is at once both refreshing and tinged with tension.

You might notice that my works lack proper titles, and are instead simply assigned numbers. Why? Each piece of art represents something wholly unique to every person experiencing it, and by leaving out the artist’s interpretation in the title, this experience is allowed to remain purely personal.

"

Art represents to me the invitation to continue
experimenting and learning; a process through
which I grow as both an artist and human being.
And perhaps, the greatest part of it is being able
to fail, knowing that life will still continue on
just beautifully.
