2013

About

Mary Reilly works with both powdered graphite and graphite pencil on paper. The artist memorializes tree carvings or “graffiti” found within the woods of Alley Pond Park, Queens. The imagery in her drawings continues the dialogue Reilly pursues with urban life and nature via the discovery of oft-forgotten, secluded spaces in the parks and other outlying sites within New York City. Reilly elevates the scarred trees into something timeless. Each carving is different and speaks to its own unique history. Reilly describes walking through the woods as if it were a trip back in time. Reilly creates homage to these anonymous small crimes of passion, which nature seems to have endured without pause. New York native Mary Reilly studied art at SUNY Purchase, the School of Visual Arts, the Art Students League of New York, and the National Academy School of Fine Arts. After a career as a graphic designer, she began pursuing her career as an artist full time and studied with artists Frederick Brosen and Sharon Sprung. She currently lives and works in Manhattan. Signature: Signed verso "M. Reilly 2013" Framed: 16 x 19 inches Provenance: Artist to GarveySimon, New York, NY
