Exuberant and timeless,
Mary Fisher’s work brings
all the influences of her extraordinary life into a
seemingly single stroke.
It reverberates with the red rock mountains and canyons of her cherished primitive Southwest.
It sings of her experiences in Paris. And it extolls the empowerment
of women in Third World nations.
A crusader as much as an artist, Mary is a modern-day pioneer
who teaches us in gentle but vibrant
ways what it is to commune with
color, texture, time and space.
Her bold expressions, honed from her intimate relationships with indigenous forms, are integrated
into contemporary elements that help us celebrate ourselves and
one another, then and now.
Her exquisite fine-art quilts
and other works are collected internationally, by critics and corporations, galleries and museums. She has been commissioned to perform pieces for permanent installation in U.S. embassies
and in the United Nation's Geneva headquarters. Her products beg to be touched, held – like a favorite bathrobe, a time-tested pair of mittens. It’s a testament to Mary’s ability to inject a sense of the atavistic into her work, and underscores the importance
of making art an everyday need.
Her quilt fabric and jewelry lines attract a wide audience – men and women longing to embrace art as familiar friends, not mere artifacts. "My hope is for people to belong," says Mary.
"Through art, we discover common elements that bring us together.
To be warm, to be whole, to reach
out and consider others' needs."
You’re invited to join Mary on
a personal tour of her studio.
