Mary Abma is an artist who lives in Bright’s Grove, Ontario, Canada. Her artworks, which consist primarily of idea-based works executed in a variety of artistic forms, explore themes that allow her to incorporate her interest in history, her concern for the environment, her passion for science, and her desire to find visual expression for her thoughts about the human condition. “I visit themes that relate to universal experiences that are present in our own life narratives. These layered works examine connections, or bridges that are integral to our stories. I am especially interested in exploring the bridges that bring us into a connection with our past, and those that define our relationship with and our place in the natural world.”
