is a ClimateCultures Author

Mary is an abstract artist and painter. Her work addresses the anoxic in relation to human responsibility and maritime concerns. The far-reaching ecological scenarios impacting the ocean, including carbon emissions, acidification and subsequently climate change, are central to her research which is developed within a series of collections. “Human responsibility and its relation to maritime concerns are central to a developing body of work. Interrogating this notion in respect of mankind, my work is aligned with the embodiment of two elements – that which lies beneath the surface and the banality of the unthinking. The banality of the unthinking or thoughtlessness is an everyday contemporary subterfuge that lends itself to the unravelling of human involved activities that prompt questions about responsibility.”
