Mary Ann Peters
Seattle's Public Art: Mary Ann Peters

Inspired by her Lebanese heritage, Mary Ann Peters' work investigates a combination of Western aesthetic elements with Arabic influences. This cross-cultural interest gives Peters' work a unique personal vocabulary. Sensuous in their forms and inviting in their reference to a personal territory, Peters' work maps a response to a place either real or imagined. They are abstractions anchored by the possibility that the elements exist. Peters' unique formal vocabulary uses a combination of Arabesque lines, organic shapes and washes of graphite and color. Driven by something largely felt, or initiated by and guided within intuition, these elements combine to give her work a rhythmic spontaneity and complexity. Produced for the Seattle Channel by John Forsen with support from the Mayor's Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs.
