Mary Lou Swicklik
Intuitive Geometry, the title of my first one person show has become a way of thinking and a way of painting. Often my paintings turn into puzzles which must be solved through redesign, reinterpretation or color. Hopefully, my work ends up with a sense of movement developed by the intuitive and planned use of color and shape. As a work progresses it leads me to a result which I trust will be interesting, unique and sometimes fun.
