About the Art
Through abstraction and a reimagining of the everyday, this piece invites the viewer to reinterpret the world around them in fresh, inspired and unfamiliar ways.
Figurative yet abstract, explicit yet discreet, Nude I is just the right amount of suggestive. Safransky’s gestural style and simple color palette allow us to see the effort behind her work.
Solo on a smaller wall, so you can get up close and personal with her!
About the artist
Based in Portland, OR, Mara works across a variety of mediums including paint, pastel, and fiber-based sculpture. Strongly influenced by the work of the Abstract Expressionists, she uses color, shape, and movement to engage viewers in a subjective, freely-associative experience.
I create each piece with the intent that viewers layer their memories and experiences atop my own; that each will divine personal significance that is distinct and meaningful.”
