About Mary Papas

From a very young age I started sketching people, animals and the scenery  around me.
At age 14, I enrolled for my first course in sketching and line drawing at the ‘ABC’ Art School in Paris.  In those days I was living in Greece and the Art School had a branch in Athens.
At school I enjoyed the Art class more than any other subject except for Maths, another favourite of mine.
Later, when I could dedicate more time to art, I attended painting classes for four years developing and learning different styles and techniques with leading  Art teachers and another three years for abstract studies learning to think and express these thoughts and ideas in an abstract way.
Also, I studied the old impressionists and the later more modern works of art.
When painting, I always have a concept in mind taken from the world around me. Living in four different countries of diverse religions and cultures, through my growing-up years, has prepared me for a spiritual journey in which I can only express in my paintings.
My preferred method of painting is with a palette knife.  I like the clarity of the undiluted buttery texture of the paint and the sharp contrast of the different hues.  I like to sculpture my shapes on my two dimensional surfaces.

Abstract body of work

The latest body of work am creating, is the exploration of over populated high rise living in a big city environment. The expectations of busy urbanites and their life’s aspirations, the upright climb of the social ladder or staircase to the lit door, sometimes someone waiting to receive them or trying to reach the top of the ladder through what would be a difficult journey to ultimate success in ones life.
Happy people, sad and lonely all have dreams and goals to realize in their life. The abstraction of the build up city is relevant to the abstract energy incurred by mass living environment.
