MARY THRASIVOULOU SPENCE

Mary was born in Larnaca, Cyprus and moved to London at the age of 5.

Central to Mary’s work is her use of colour and texture, which are employed to convey a range of experiences and emotions, inspired by music and the world which surrounds us the work is created intuitively: elements of chance and random order are happily incorporated into seemingly very controlled works.

The paintings are built up in layers over time with subtle shifts of tone/colour, employing techniques as seem necessary in the moment. The work is not static and is constantly evolving; paintings grow one from the other. Mary operates from her East London studio, and has exhibited regularly since 1985, mostly in London.
