Mary Iverson’s Mixed Media Paintings of Shipping Containers.
Mary Iverson skilfully mixes natural and man made landscapes with shipping containers and other objects haphazardly stacked on each other. The use of cross-hatched, overlaid lines, suggest a sense of complex connectivity… a bit chaotic but organised at the same time.
In her own words: “My paintings are colorful abstractions that spring from the theme of the industrial shipping terminal. The canvases feature mass accumulations of shipping containers and container cranes in various perspectives. My work employs a network of searching perspective lines and layers of interlocking, colorful planes and rectangles that suggest both deep space and flat surface.”
Iverson received her MFA in Painting from the University of Washington in 2002 and currently teaches painting and drawing at Skagit Valley College in Mount Vernon, WA as a tenured faculty member.
