Lives and works in London, UK
Born in 1988, London based artist Mary Herbert's work is an intuitive exploration of memory and sensation. Working at the intersection of drawing and painting, she creates subtle and enigmatic works which oscillate between the recognised and the unknown. Her current work is a series of dream-like pastel drawings and paintings formed of a composite of feelings, lived-sensation, unconscious processes and observation. Mary studied art at Goldsmiths College in London, where she developed a fascination with the materiality of the photographic image and it’s role in our collective lives as a container of memory or document of reality, and later at the Royal Drawing School where she re-connected with the physical and unconscious aspects of image making through drawing.
