About The Artwork

This is a brightly colored abstract basket and handled vessel form with an abundance of glaze drips and textures, continuing with my exploration of abstract basket forms in white earthenware clay. The white clay provides a bright surface for the glaze colors to mix and compliment each other similar to the way I use paint on a canvas. This piece has an intensely busy surface with a variety of textures from glossy to matte, and very bold color. These sculptural pieces in this series are explorations of color to compliment my painting practice. The glaze behaves within with subtle elements of unpredictability- though within parameters of its firing capabilities. I know that after modifying a glaze that it will likely drip or run, but I wont know by how much until I can safely open the cooled kiln after a firing. It has been my intention to make very complex pieces that offer a new discovery of detail with every viewing. This sculpture will ship safely packaged in a heavy duty box. Signed and dated in 22K gold luster at the base.

I am an abstract painter working in oil, acrylic, and watercolor. I switch between mediums frequently, and I often experiment with a variety of tools. Experimentation and chance have been catalysts toward new bodies of work. My artwork is represented by Unsettled Gallery in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Generally, I have painted in an abstract aerial landscape style, and I tend to favor a bright palette with lots of contrast. My painting process is explorative. I rarely plan a painting. Rather, I begin by making gestural marks. Those skeletal marks influence the direction of the painting, giving the process a beginning. Form is brought to life with the use of color, and I will often give "objects" subtle shadows to convey a sense of depth in my non-objective pieces, hinting at what I like to call "personification of form." A square of color appears to float with a small shadow under it, nearly making it an actual thing, and giving it a personality of sorts. The process of painting involves making these forms relate to each other, becoming a whole painting in the end. Summer of 2021 I began to experiment with music production. I have become intensely interested in how music making is influencing my visual art making capacities. Ideas have begun to percolate and I look forward to starting a new series now that I have released my first album on bandcamp. mary.robertson.artist (instagram)
