|Evening on the Seine © Maria Marino|
Bio: Maria Marino was born in Washington D.C. She obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute of Art in 1998 and after a career in interior design, especially of corporate and educational facilities, she began to paint professionally full-time. She now lives in a farming district of Maryland where she has her studio.
Maria exhibits her work in national shows and in galleries. She has received recognition for her paintings by the Allied Artists of America, Salmagundi Club, Pastel Society of America and the National Arts Club where she holds memberships. Her work is featured in the December 2016 issue of the Pastel Journal in an extensive and informative article by Robert Carsten.
Medium: Pastel, Oil.
Subjects : Landscape
Style: The artist claims to be a modern American Impressionist. However, it seems to me that the combination of bold impasto textures, impassioned mark-making and sumptuous, intuitive color smacks more of Expressionism. But what's in a name?
