b. Berkeley, California 1945

Lives and works in Los Angeles

Mary Corse first gained recognition in the mid-1960s as one of the few women associated with the Light and Space movement that originated in Southern California. Using materials which both capture and refract light, Corse is widely recognized for her innovative painting technique. Her paintings obsessively engage with perception and embody rather than merely represent light, combining a philosophical quest for the portrayal of the infinite with a highly skilled methodical and scientific rigour.
