Mary-Ann Kokoska  Nature Destabilized


September 13-October 11, 2013
Opening Reception and Artist Talk: Friday, September 13, 7-9pm

Working primarily in the medium of drawing and collage, Mary-Ann Kokoska creates large-scale works that question the traditions of a picturesque vista in response to global warming and recent climactic events.  Kokoska is particularly interested in currents of water and air, specifically the effects of monster storms and tornados.  The resulting build up of clouds, torrential rains, high winds and tidal surges are the subject for Kokoska’s imagery.

Mary-Ann Kokoska is an Associate Professor at Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO.   Kokoska received her MFA from Concordia University, Montreal, Canada and her BFA from Queen’s University, Kingston, Canada.
