About

Mary Schiliro’s work with acrylic paint on Mylar is process based, and expands the boundaries of painting by exploring alternative presentation methods. Using a dipping process where the work becomes a film of translucent, fluid color suspended in space, the paint coats the Mylar enabling medium and support to become one. Color becomes a physical substance freed from its traditional role of creating illusion on a flat surface enabling it to exist in real space. Hanging her work just off the wall, allows light to pass through and illuminate the color to varying degrees. Color and shadows are transmitted through the Mylar onto the wall. This enhances the interplay between the highly saturated, physical presence of color and the changing nature of light. She is deeply interested in the tangible and real versus the ephemeral and impermanent as metaphors for the human condition. Schiliro’s work has been exhibited across the United States, in New York, California, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and the District of Columbia. Schiliro has created site-specific installations for PS122 Gallery, The Art Lot and Norte Maar in NYC, as well as for the Islip Art Museum in East Islip, NY, and most recently for the Imogen Holloway Gallery in Saugerties, NY. In 2018 she participated in Blurring Boundaries: The Women of American Abstract Artists, 1936-Present at Murray State University in Kentucky. Internationally, she has exhibited at ParisCONCRET in Paris, France. In the summer of 2017, Schiliro participated in From Mondriaan to Dutch Design, a centennial celebration of the De Stijl movement in The Netherlands. Upcoming in 2019, Schiliro will exhibit her work at ODETTA, in Brooklyn, NY, as well as Mathilde Hatzenberger Gallery in Belgium, and dr. julius ap in Germany. Schiliro’s works are in numerous private collections as well as Swiss Re’s internationally recognized contemporary collection. Her work has been reviewed in the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Sculpture Magazine, The New Criterion and On-Verge. Schiliro was the recipient of two Project Studio residencies at PS122. She received a Master of Fine Arts degree from Hunter College of the City University of New York and is a Member of American Abstract Artists.
