Mary O’Malley’s complex drawings explore the raw intricacies of nature and natural processes. At first glance they are delicate and dazzling abstractions of line and shape. Upon closer inspection they become enchanting assemblages where forests, flowers and cell structures emerge and converge. O’Malley appropriates imagery from the Baroque to the botanical, and everything in between including microscopic biotechnology and textile lace patterns. Each drawing seems to capture the wildly irrational, untamed beauty of its inspiration.
