About this Piece

Of her style, Vernon says, "In the world of still life and landscape, conceptual events meet one another - the structural meets the narrative, the small stands in the space of the large, and color has a chance to navigate these meetings, changing everything. All my paintings show this shifting world."

About the Artist

In 2017, Dallas-based artist Mary Vernon finished her 50th year at SMU where she taught studio art, color theory and art history. Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries both nationally and abroad, but her impact on the Dallas art community is one so great, we may never know the extent of its reach. Of her work, Vernon has said, "A part of my work has always been organization and analysis. Structures suggested themselves from the placement of objects in rooms, from works of art, and from the tangles of landscape. Underlying any image is a geometric structure. And another part of my work has been that of seeking the ideas, intents, desires, wit, and experience of a place - the genius loci. I have tried to show how the vegetative landscape regards itself. If form, for a poet, can be both structure and essence, it can be so for a painter."
