Mary J. Leen is currently working on a series of painting for a solo exhibition in CoGalleries in Berlin Mitte in July.
About the work:
In the eternal search for self, her process involves connecting energetically with her subjects of study. Imagining their inner world, how they thought and felt. A narrative with a unique merging of fact and fiction emerges through this imaginative process. She strives to reference the inner riches that she can imagine within her subject. By creating and by capturing this essence she is attempting to upgrade her own psyche and to gift her subjects a form of immortality.
In essence her thought process is formulaic, Connection + expression = Freedom.
