Mary Medrano, About Face: acrylic figurative series.

My paintings come from my imagination and they represent feelings and emotions. The solitary figure represents many things for me. Having lost my mother last year, I felt a profound sense of being alone in the world, so in some respects the women are me. The men are loosely based on my brothers who after my Mom’s passing for a variety of reasons stopped speaking to each other.

Being an optimist, I am hopeful. I know that time will help heal. I look forward to painting multiple figures to represent interaction, communication and love.
