Mary Maughelli

I am a mixed media painter using collage on paper and wood panels which deal with images of women which represent a personal examination about identity, the body, and self. My work is art about art and relies on images from art history especially the Venus figure from Botticelli’s, Birth of Venus, Titian’s Venus, and the Cappadocia virgin from early Christian art in Turkey. These are combined with drawn and painted contemporary images of the female torsos. I am continuously concerned with dualities and opposites: inside-outside, surface-interior positive-negative, appearance-identity, and concrete-spiritual.
