2/21: Maryanne Pollock

Maryanne Pollock's abstract work finds affinity with the Washington Color School, where the application of pure color creates glowing visual sensations. Her spontaneous and improvisational style explores the effects between nurture and nature through the creative process. Controlled shapes mimic the use of human genome symbols to signify scientific theories.
