Statement

MARY ANN LEITCH  
Philadelphia Pa USA
www.artbymal.com

Since 1975 MAL's works have brought much attention to the art-viewing public.  Her paintings and works on paper are collected internationally.

Emerging with the "Ladies" series, she sensuously depicted the "femme fatale" figure on large canvases with oils and on paper, pastels.  These works are available today by Giclee reproduction and in book form, "Art by MAL - Ladies".

To satisfy a desire to paint visual legerdemain, she produces fantasy still lifes with objects d'art.  This style surfaced recently in the "Falling Fruit thru Clouds" series of paintings and pastels.    Selections of her works are available as Giclee prints on canvas, metal, acrylic panel or paper in assorted sizes thru Fine Art America at this address http://mary-ann-leitch.artistwebsit...

In 1986, she broke her realist’s boundaries with a series of works mixing realism and abstract composition.  Works on paper, "Legs”,  "Luvs" and "Mini Legs" evolved leading to the non-representational series  "Exploration".   Fields of sensual color, impasto lines of movement, glimmers of glitter and cut glass jewels come together for an opulent celestial voyage.  Her tones of color are uplifting and the use of mineral stones is nu-age in spirit.

She has come full circle to the "Resolution" series of abstract-realism works; combining acrylic with attachments to include beaches, horses, riders, leaves, the sea, eco-animal awareness and la femmes on canvas and wood - on paper, using silk screen and collage.  The painting series,  “3 Beaches” was produced with the use of multiple wood panels filled with colors of the sea, sand, sky and assorted attachments of shells, rocks, plastic fish and people things one sees at the beach.  The use of multiple panels, allows for assemblage to larger works.  

She is also enlarging the “Eco-Animal Awareness” series as the ecological crimes are increasing and has adapted 12 works to an archival print series.  2010 also brings additions to the Falling Fruit thru Clouds to 20 works, Horse & Rider groups and birthing of the Mystical Desert series. Executed on wood panels assembled with a collage of creatures, desert pictures, 3D objects of mystical connotation along with iridescent metallic glitter suggest life in the deserts of southwest USA. Digital compilations of 2012-14 using a montage of original art for large scale printing and the compiling of photographs for "Art by MAL - Photoprints" book of 48 images, her work to date.

In celebration of her 3 decade journey as a fine art painter, the dvd:  “Art by MAL – retrospectively” is available thru CreateSpace.com – also four published art books             "Art by MAL - Photoprints, Elements, Ladies and Available Art".
