Lyrical and expressive, Mary Hutchins’ oil paintings and drawings are reflective of her interest in music and movement, sound and light and the shifted, fractured way gestures can move across a canvas. Other influences include works by artists such as Richard Serra in Kitty’s Garden, as well as Asian characters. If the viewer allows the time to look at the paintings and absorb them fully, they return a spectacular gift.
Mary Hutchins received her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design in Painting in 1969. Hutchins has twice been a recipient of the prestigious residency the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire as well as the Margaret Nerone Prize granted by the Bristol Art Museum, Bristol, Rhode Island.
