Mary Corse
Mary Corse

Mary Corse (born 1945) earned acclaim in the 1960s for pieces ranging from shaped-canvas paintings to ingenious light works. Despite her now-frequent association with California’s Light and Space movement, the Los Angeles–based artist evolved independently of the region’s dominant personalities, philosophies and scenes.

Produced in conjunction with her solo exhibition at Kayne Griffin Corcoran, this is the first major catalog on the artist. The cover features a unique, coarsely textured treatment that evokes the subtle luminosity of Corse’s large paintings. With an essay by Suzanne Hudson and an interview by Alex Bacon, it initiates a critical reappraisal of a significant, underrepresented artist.
