28 MAY – 25 SEPTEMBER 2015
Mary A. Waters grew up in Ireland, where the access to the masterpieces of the museums and to the rich illustrated books of the libraries was very difficult. Fascinated by the art of the Italian Renaissance as well as the art of the Dutch and British Golden Age, she had to satisfy her curiosity with the reproductions, often in black and white, she could find on catalogues.
This indirect contact with artworks deeply impressed her reflection, and the use of reproductions is at the core of her artistic approach.
