Mary Kramer
Born in Annapolis, Maryland, Mary Kramer spent most of her childhood in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The landscape and culture of the Southwest remain influential in her life and work. In her paintings there is a profound connection between material and idea. The contemplative palette and richly layered surfaces evoke a sense of the earth, but also betray deeply considered concepts related to human concerns like memory, language and the boundaries drawn to preserve them. In the paintings she re-imagines the mysterious forces that link the mind and heart to the timelessness and continuity of the land.
