Statement

MaryMattingly

Born in Washington D.C., Mattingly lives and works in New York City.

Fueled by humor and nostalgia, Mattingly utilizes pop and graphic images that resonate with her all-American upbringing and penchant to find wit and absurdity in the ordinary and mundane. Her approach to the artistic process is uncomplicated: she forgoes the cerebral for the intuitive, and unambiguous over the abstruse, adding her own blend of nostalgia and whimsy.

Drawing from her diverse, successful career in advertising, she exhibits a strong graphic element to her work, whether through the use of color, manipulated photographs, or the use and arrangement of type. Her sensibility is also shaped by her earlier work as a children’s illustrator and her years spent working with photography at National Geographic. She reaps inspiration from the compelling boldness of advertisements (both past and present,) vintage cartoons, and from working with new and unusual materials.

Working in a variety of mediums and techniques, from polished aluminum, collage, fiberglass, neon, painting on metal, and even 3D printing, her art is characterized by her predilection for both playfulness and experimentation. Often utilizing her iconic people symbols in contexts ranging from classical poses to driving in a convertible reminiscent of childhood road trips, Mattingly reminds us to laugh and not take ourselves too seriously.
