Mary K Larsen’s paintings are created from rich layers of vibrant watercolor washes and intricate, obsessive pen and ink embellishment. Her imagery, often described as visceral and prurient, addresses the mercurial nature of visual lust and a cultural preoccupation with the female form as object. They reflect the struggle to effectively express the dissociative and isolating inclinations of a creative nature by an artist grappling with the demands and expectations of a traditional upbringing and lifestyle.
