About Ezra Mara

I am an artist living in San Francisco Bay Area.
People is the main subject of my work. In a single space of a painting I combine, by sewing together, images of people with pieces of raw gray or primed white canvas. I observe how the canvas hides parts of the images and deforms them, how threads and seams disturb the flatness of the surface itself, how that all creates tension and intrigue within the composition. It creates situations of something hidden, unknown, unconscious, forbidden, forgotten, lost... - all the things that interest me in life and in art.
