Long-time resident of NYC and Bard College MFA grad, Mary Pinto, has witnessed first-hand the transition of her neighborhoods in Queens and Brooklyn and how they have changed. One way to know a place is to be attuned the cultural reflections in the landscape. Whether it is her own garden or the greater city, Mary’s photogram collages feel like they both figuratively and literally reflect the evolving landscape around her. She assembles hand cut chromogenic color photograms of natural elements and New York Times newspaper clippings into collages that give us some insight on the forces she see being exerted on places she loves.
GALLERY 1/1 is proud to be the first to exhibit Mary's work in Seattle.
