Mary Sanders is a contemporary abstract painter, who is inspired by the atmosphere of rugged landscapes and in particular the fells of the Lake District where she regularly walks. It is the emotional response and
memory of place which ignites her paintings.
Mary’s work reflects an interest in colour, texture, movement and mark-making. Her practice mainly utilises acrylics and mixed media but experimentation with techniques and materials is fundamental to her art.
Working in a series, paintings evolve using initial intuitive layers of colour and marks which are then scraped and scratched into, often revealing a hint of unexpected colour or texture. This process is ongoing until the work takes shape and becomes more refined and ultimately resolved. Taking risks is at the heart of Mary’s work and she aims to produce dynamic paintings which will excite the viewer.
