Mary Bero

 

STATEMENT


Mary Bero fearlessly breaks all the traditional rules of fiber art.  She deftly combines embroidery, painting, and sculptural elements to create exuberant works of art.  She is a virtuoso of color.  Her images are loosely connected, as if part of a daydream or, at times a nightmare.  The various elements in the picture plane come together through a succession of small marks, and build to a cohesive whole.
