Catalogue Note

Schooled in sculpture and ceramics, Mary Heilmann only began to paint when she moved to New York in the 1960’s. In the present work, the artist experiments with geometry and the flatness of the canvas, toying with space and form by using simple, bold lines. Heilmann is known to install paintings alongside benches and furniture of her own making, using her diverse artistic training to explore geometry and shape.
