“Curious Distortions” by Mary Spain

ON VIEW now through December 30, 2015

An exhibition of works by Mary Spain are on display just outside ARTneo’s permanent gallery at 78th Street Studios. Set in a realm of fantasy, Mary Spain’s work exhibits oddly distorted figures in a child-like manner with an underlying sense of absurdity. Through her toylike and primitive style, Spain created surrealistic dramas that puzzle and entrance the viewer.

Mary Spain was an American visual artist who was born in 1934. Numerous works by the artist have been sold at auction, including ‘First Prize Levitation Piece’ sold at Kodner Galleries ‘Auction’ in 2014. The artist died in 1983.
