Mary Admasian — multidisciplinary artist

Small Assemblages and Sculptures, AKA: MARKED

Admasian’s newest series titled MARKED is her latest collection of small sculptures and assemblages made from reclaimed wood, barbed wire, rusted metal, gold wire, glass beads, acrylic paint, and graphite. She has composed a collection with a conceptual narrative prompted by how we mark trees with blue paint before they are cut, discarded, or used for building.

Within these found materials, she explores the actual barriers between objects—positions and connections—as well as the implicit boundaries of familial, political, and social covenants and conventions. These relationships inspire her to use art as a link between natural and manufactured environments to reflect how they represent structural elements within strata.
