Mary Fedorowski: The Watcher

@ The Martin

2500 W Chicago Ave, Chicago, IL 60622

Opening Friday, October 29th, from 6PM - 9PM

On view through Sunday, November 14th

THE WATCHER, a solo exhibition by artist Mary Fedorowski, is a body of work that plays off the relationship between two actors: the viewer and the watcher. This series is an expression of observing and being observed. By creating unique landscapes, though stark, the viewer is invited to place themselves in the spaces.

This series invites the viewer to reflect on who they watch and who watches them, where they choose to place their attention, and the calm or unrest that creates.

Mary Fedorowski is a multi-disciplinary painter and muralist. Fedorowski uses the beauty of modern architecture and greenery to show how light and color fundamentally bring shapes to life. Fedorowski implements hard-edged abstract techniques and pushes the boundaries of the basic visual concepts of contrast, balance, proportion, and movement.

She is influenced by the colors of the desert sunset, mid-century designers such as Alvar Aalto and Ludwig Meis van der Rohe, artists Edward Hopper and David Hockney, and photographer Slim Aarons. Fedorowski works to create peaceful spaces in a quest to find calm in an overstimulating world.

Join us for Mary’s opening reception on October 29th from 6-9pm and/or the closing reception on November 13th from 6-9pm. Open gallery hours will also be available throughout the month to see the work.
