On Easter, growing up, we were given large decorated eggs, colorful and lacey on the outside with an opening on one end to show scenes inside. I remember looking in, so fascinated with this miniature landscape, wanting to crawl inside this other world. Art has since become a way of building relationships between my interior and exterior worlds." - Mary Button Durell

In her work she uses tracing paper, wire, wheat paste and acrylic paint to build up her abstracted organic forms, ribboned groupings and delicate modular structures. enjoy!
