Harold, Mary

Mary Harold



Mary has loved being behind the lens since the age of 9 when she got her first Kodak Brownie camera. Her focus in fine art photography  is to capture the absurd, obvious, decay, and beauty that others do not see. B/W, color, HDR, light, dark – there is always something to be captured.

Mary’s work has been exhibited extensively throughout the region. Awards have been received from The Flinn Gallery in Greenwich and the Rowayton Arts Center. Her work as also been shown at The Katonah Museum, The New Britain Museum of American Art, The Fairfield Museum and History Center, The Bendheim Gallery, Ridgefield Guild of Artists, Westport Arts Center, Carriage Barn, Soho Photo Gallery, Ferguson Library, Wilton Library, Ridgefield Library and many private collections.  Her work has also been published in many newspapers and magazines. Presently, she is the Co-President of the Ridgefield Guild of Artists and is a member of the Westport Arts Center, Westport Arts Collective, Rowayton Arts Center, Greenwich Arts Society, and the Carriage Barn.


Artist Statement

I express my artistic vision through photography and view the world as a visual treat with its colors, textures, patterns and abstractions.  Behind the lens is the base negative that transforms and metamorphosizes into the song of what my heart sees.  The computer has transformed photography into a revolutionary art form with all of its complexities.

Artist Statement

The seashell is a timeless symbol that for me evokes playfulness of time spent on the beach. The illustrative works I create are titled to amuse the viewer. I especially enjoy using 'play on words' to title them. They are 'little celebrations' of art. My walks on the beach and forest on soft grey days provide me with inspiration to create monoprint images showing the subtle colors and fleeting moment that only become visible in the misty atmosphere. They are like the images created by the waves on the water edge, similar but infinitely different.

Finding the magical in the everyday has always interested me. Trying to produce images that convey that magic is a lifelong pursuit.

Artist Statement

My ceramic sculpture takes the form of wall pieces and vessels in porcelain.
My recent series of works, Becoming Imperfect, are about what it means to grow. It seems to me that works of art and living things are both born with the perfection of an untested plan. As they grow, they are nurtured and challenged by natural forces and ideas beyond their initial capacity. The struggle to accommodate challenges compels development and change. In departing from the blueprint, art and living things become richer in history and visual complexity. The perfect is transformed to a more significant imperfect. Ideas about growth and transformation affect the way that I physically manipulate the clay and point toward the meaning of my work
