'Terra Recognita' presents a recent selection of Mary Bucci McCoy’s intimate abstract acrylic and mixed media paintings. The color, marks and materiality of the work poetically reference and integrate forms and processes of the natural landscape, plants, and the human body through a painterly language grounded in her formal training as a ceramic sculptor. Echoing the scale of the human head, the vertical rectangular and oval paintings obliquely suggest mirrors or the art historical format of the cameo portrait and so invite the viewer into a focused, self-reflexive encounter.

Mary Bucci McCoy’s recent solo exhibitions include Gray Contemporary, Houston, TX; CG2 Gallery, Nashville, TN; and Kingston Gallery, Boston, MA. Other venues include 1285 Madison Avenue Gallery, New York, NY; Rhode Island College, Providence, RI; Montserrat College of Art, Beverly, MA; Tiger Strikes Asteroid, Philadelphia, PA; FPAC Gallery, Boston, MA; AG Gallery, Brooklyn, NY; Southern New Hampshire University, Manchester, NH; and the Art Complex Museum, Duxbury, MA.

Awards include a Painting Fellowship from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a merit-based grant from the Vermont Studio Center in support of her month-long residency, and the Luz Dorrien Faculty Development Award, Montserrat College of Art, Beverly, MA. She holds a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston/Tufts University and a BA in English from Tufts University. She has also studied ceramic sculpture at l'Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in Geneva, Switzerland (now Haute École d’Art et de Design Genève). She has lived and worked in Beverly, MA since 2001.
