"Botanicals fascinate me. Deep within their cells a whole other complex world awaits. I wanted to portray this microscopic plant life with lines. The organic nature of watercolor paint splits and reconnects as it channels through the water, much like cells, evolving. These pieces are, at their fundamental level, about connection." - Mary Gaspar

About Mary Gaspar

Mary Gaspar is an abstract watercolor and acrylic painter from Chicago, Illinois. She painted at the Evanston Art Center throughout her youth and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Illinois. Her abstract “Plant Cell” pieces derived from a “post baby fog” and the need to create work that portrays connection. She has been featured in Architectural Digest, Domino Magazine, Property Brothers and her work is collected internationally.

Mary paints in her home studio in Wilmette, Illinois where she lives with her husband, three young daughters and border collie. When she’s not painting, you can find her in her garden.

"I find the composition first and then the painting reveals herself to me through layers of water, color and texture, in a composed symphony. In creating a painting I am pursuing the duality in things, light and dark, calm and chaos, the perfect connection with imperfect lines, the raw strangeness and familiar bonds."
