Mary C. Nasser's Profile

About

All of my art is inspired by nature, especially landscapes and geology. I am captivated by the idea that geological shifts seem to parallel people’s lives and relationships. They are continually changing, varying, shifting and developing.

I use maps as a medium in my art because I love the way they look – their lines, rhythm, movement and patterns. I’m intrigued that maps are tangible, portable guides to places and that they impart information much like a painting: they translate what is three-dimensional into two dimensions. To create my art, I layer maps and scientific illustrations. I add thick and colorful layers, then wipe, scratch and scrape to reveal underlying sections. I know my work will continue to change and evolve, just like the very landscapes that inspire me.
