    Artist Statement
    Contemporary painter Mary Tomás captures the quiet grace of natural forms; creating restful
    interludes in which to contemplate her ethereal scenes and to discover the metaphoric imagery
    revealed within their simplicity that gives three-dimensional context to the literal, emotional and
    spiritual world she interprets.
    Using translucent and saturated color, light and shadow, form and space, Tomás explores the
    cohesive and mutable relationships between the elements of air, water, earth and sky, and their
    parallels in human nature. Evoking serenity to inspire a meditative calm, she seeks to awaken
    the consciousness.
    Her technique, layering thin oil washes as in the early chiaroscuro painters who used intense
    lights and darks to create a heightened sensorial experience, engages the viewer on a journey
    deeper into the canvas. The effect is a visual conversation; punctuated with the intrigue between
    line and form, flowing with the subtle play of light, and changing with nuances between subject
    and viewer.
