Mary Cosh is an artist based West Orange, NJ and New York, NY. Mary paints and draws kids, adults and trees that could be either or. The concept of “coming of age” is explored as non-restrictive to adolescence. Happiness as a distinct desire plays a pinnacle role in each piece’s story. Film is inevitably an inspiration as it is consistent source of narrative that is inherently subjective. Drama is underscored by stark contrasting darks, whites and potential bursts of bright pop colors. Originally from Southern California, imaginative scenes from Mary’s former home have also been known to seep into the work.
Mary has received grants for international residencies in Marseille, France, Sierre, Switzerland, Venice, Italy as well as domestically in Vermont. Her work has been sought out by individual collectors, as well as MTV and AMC. She received a BFA from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco, CA and a MFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY.
