Mary Hatch [New York, NY]
Painting
My work has always involved the figure, usually in a narrative context. This is partly because the human form is challenging to work with and every nuance is expressive, but mostly because I am interested in people and the way they relate to each other and society. It is what lies beneath the surface, the hidden aspects of our culture that fascinate me.

My style is fairly traditional, in reference to draftsmanship, however, the color and content is often slightly askew. On the surface my figures appear to be attractive, well dressed, people — our idealized American culture. Underneath, however, there is often a feeling that something is not quite right — a recognition of the precarious balance of contemporary society.
