Mary Jo Wentz
Curated by Alex Priest
Painting with alcohol inks allows Wentz to express ideas in a way that is colorfully intense with an often unexpected outcome. Her paintings have a somewhat organic quality and are inspired by people, travel, nature, history and design. In the artist’s experience working with fibers, the medium itself is as much a participant in the process as her own ideals. “We work as co-creators of each bowl or basket.” Her process is an interactive and interesting journey of discovery and joy, as much tactile as visual and kinesthetic.
