Mary Crockett                                               STATEMENT

 

 

 

My work is about light and dark as space and distance, often as if looking through the surface plane

 

to the light behind. 

 

As well as making paintings I use printmaking, both etching and monoprint.

 

 The images  are built up slowly, laying down layers of transparent colour whether monoprinting,

 

etching or painting , working from light to dark, until hopefully I arrive at a feeling and a place as it

 

is held in my memory.

 

I  start with drawings and the memory of a particular place, paring down and

 

simplifying  through the process, whether painting or printing, until a sense of that moment

 

remains.
