Mary Corse was born in the Bay Area in 1945 and studied art from a very early age. Inspired by the abstractions, compositions, and color theories of artists such as Wassily Kandinsky and Josef Albers, she enrolled at Chouinard Art Institute in the mid-1960s to study painting. She soon began to create large-scale works using shaped canvases and non-traditional materials like Plexiglas, fluorescent lights, and glass microspheres to bridge the mediums of painting and sculpture. The evanescent light effects of her works shift with every viewing angle and are nearly impossible to capture in photographs.
