Mary Iselin is a professional artist whose paintings are luminous and filled with light. She sees the horse as bridge connecting spirit with everyday reality. The sheep and lambs which become her models are chosen for the ability of their fleece to “take the light’. And her landscape motifs are selected for their special qualities of light, color and atmosphere. “I paint horses the way some artists paint a bowl of fruit: as a vehicle to explore light, color, atmosphere and most of all, spirit.”
“The longer I paint, (and I have been painting most of my life), the more I feel that the point is to just paint. Technique can be learned, styles can be copied, but when all is said and done, it is the artist’s honest response to his motif that creates art.”
Mary Iselin is represented by 3 Pears Gallery in Dorset, VT, Mill Brook Gallery in Concord, NH; Vermont Artisans in Brattleboro, VT; Creative Encounters in Keene, NH; and Sunapee Landing Gallery in Sunapee, NH.
