Gifts of Art presents Fusion & Separation: Mixed Media on Panel
Mary Rousseaux's works appear to be flowing liquid that melds on the surface. The painting materials both fuse and separate, settling into forms that depict unions. Often deep within the dense surfaces are linear elements, which add a graceful and lyrical quality. "I am influenced by nature and the elemental battle fought for balance in the environment… Things that once held a simple position become more complex in the erosion," says Rousseaux. She maintains a large loft studio in an industrial building in Detroit, and her work is included in many private and corporate collections.
