Mary Webb, Suffolk based artist, makes strong, geometric abstract paintings.
Writing about Mary’s work Tim Hilton says:
“At first sight, Mary Webb’s paintings and prints appear to be extraordinarily bold. Their designs are composed of simple shapes: triangles, squares and other rectangles.
She never uses a circle, which we guess might be too elegant for her forthright purposes. Colour is evenly applied within each section and the shape of the whole work is always a square.
...In these resolutely abstract works is the sensibility of a landscapist. Mary Webb titles her prints after places that inspired them.
...Are they simple or complicated? Try to draw one. Then you’ll find that Mary Webb’s art is inimitable, and that’s because it’s ethereal.”
