Mary Weatherford creates rich, colorful paintings that manage to achieve a harmonious visual equilibrium despite brimming with contrasting polychromatic countenances. Inspired by natural landscapes—Weatherford often works from sketches of her local California seascapes—her canvases of undulating color evoke imagery of rolling hillsides and breaking waves. More recently, the artist’s work has drawn on her past experiences of living in New York City: exposed neon lighting fixtures are affixed to the surface of the paintings, adding a visceral materiality to her ephemeral images, activating the work both as painting and installation. Weatherford’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States, including the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the Boston University Art Gallery, and the Orange County Museum of Art.
