Titled "Taurus", this abstract oil painting is by the late Mary Gardner (1920-1997). Gardner's creativity manifested across media. In addition to painting, she worked with sculpture, furniture, and textile. She was also a model. Regarding her painting process, she said, "Every painting I do begins with a dream." That catalyst is apparent in this vertically oriented composition, with its bold forms evoking the elemental and perhaps a subconscious, forceful occurrence.
This painting is presented in a new, custom-made gilt frame. It is signed on the lower right.
