Mary Armstrong: "There is an important balance between the world and the work. But, ultimately, the deeper wells of inspiration come more from simply being...in the light of Maine and my imagination." In her most recent work, Armstrong gives form to the unsayable. Concerned with the condition of the world, she conveys her anxiety in the form of troubled seas, darkened mountains and restless skies, her unwavering belief in the redemption of nature-and by extension humanity-wrought by her searching hand, letting in the light.
Mary Armstrong taught painting in Boston College's Department of Art, Art History, and Film from 1989 to 2019.
