ABOUT MARY AND HER WORK

The term watermedia is a broad one, including transparent watercolor as well as water-soluable pigments such as acrylic, gouche, casein, ink and tempera. Incandescent glazes of sumptuous color and dramatic contrasts of light and dark characterize the transparent watercolor and acrylic paintings of Mary Weinstein-Backer, whose technique is the same in either media. Weinstein's handling of the medium is obvious in the vast coloristic scope of her palette and her sensitive rendition of light, which glows through veils and layers of luxurious transparent color. Her hope is to communicate her personal sense of beauty. "My most cherished paintings are ones in which common things become beautiful. My work reflects my personal way of seeing, responding to nature, my primary interest is the painting process itself-not the subject matter. It is a painting, the flower is its subject." Yucaipa, California is home to Mary. She immerses herself daily in it's unique light, color and atmosphere. She spends many hours planting her informal garden of oriental poppies, hollyhocks, sunflowers and peonies. The flowers of her garden are her current subject matter. Mary is a Signature Member of the National Watercolor Society, Watercolor West, Women Artists of the West and is a Artist member of the Calfiornia Art Club. Her work has received national recognition in juried exhibitions throughout the United States, featured in leading art publications, and is included in the Archives of American Art of the Smithsonian Institute, Washington, D.C.,and the Archives of the Tate Museum, London, England. Her work is included in museum, corporate and private collections.
