Profile Information

What kind of art do you do?
Art... I am a “glaneuse”, a gleaner… In scrap heaps of abandoned or demolished buildings, alleyways and flea markets, I find rare treasure. Garbage. Remnants of wood and metal, books, boxes, old paintings, all that have been discarded are interesting to me. | My work deals with obsolescence. Each “found” object has out-lived its time and has therefore been scrapped. Dead. I rescue and assemble them with collected items from my own past. I sense the object’s energy guiding its reincarnation to a higher purpose. Art. | These artifacts that have chosen me, tell stories of where they have been, where I have been, where I am and where I am going. Stories of passion and anger, strength and weakness, love, hate and fear. Revealing me to me.
What is your website address?
What is the guiding principle in your art?
I am a mixed media artist who paints, creates 3D assemblages, photography, video & produces limited edition prints. Recently, I had my third book published. A graphic designer by profession, I am co-founder and partner of Crayon Design & Communication, a Montreal-based graphic design firm, with husband artist/photographer, Sol Lang.

Hi, Mary -- thanks for the support. I really like what you're doing, too. I've got to show you a big collage that I did recently, "These worried blues ain't bad" -- it's eerily like some of the work that you have posted. Post some more stuff, will you?
