Painted Paper Collage on Panel
18" h x 36" w

The process of collage takes Mary’s work into a new dimension. The use of Mary’s hand painted papers and additional hand made papers from around the globe create interesting texture and exaggerated movement in these collages. The effect is a visual cross between painting, mosaic and block printing. Light and color and shape taking flowers and water and landscapes to the edge of abstraction and back again.

"My friend’s yard has a large protea bush right at the entry. I’d never really noticed it before," shares Mary. "Generally, it’s kind of leggy–lots of branches, not a lot of leaves–so I wondered why it was prominently featured. In November I happened to be there and the shrubby bush had been transformed. Pink flowers everywhere!"

Quality. Beauty.

The quest for mastery.

These are the things I look for from the artists I choose to share with you.

When you make a purchase, you know you're buying innovative, original works from Hawaii's master artists.

This is the nicest gallery on the island featuring local and Hawaiian artists. Beautiful collection and a lovely owner who authored several books about the local artists. She is a great resource.
