Blue Marilyn Luminary - Princeton SeriesRegular price $ 68.00
by Mary Mayhew
Verre Eglomise is a reverse painting on glass technique that has been around since before the Romans, falling in and out of style; however, there has never before been a time where so many luminous materials can be combined in so many ways to create the vibrant intensity and depth that can now be achieved.
Starting in 2016, Mary Mayhew decided to use all her knowledge and experience about glass painting to create works that combined pop art expressionism with abstract impressionism. She wanted the works to vibrate with intensity of color and rhythm of pattern to "express the joy and challenge of being alive on our incredibly amazing and beautiful planet." Art Nouveau masters like Clement Massier with his use of iridescent pigments and the composition of the Daum Brothers have also inspired Mary Mayhew, along with Peter Max’s bold pop art palette that he infuses with oriental composition.
"The abundance of natural beauty and art that surrounds us every day continues to inspire me and I can only hope that you enjoy the glass art as much as I enjoy creating it."
