Maria Winston will be exhibiting a new series of paper-maché and ceramic wall reliefs concerning her experience dealing with cancer. Partly autobiographical, and partly inspired by other’s stories, these pieces reflect the profound feelings that one goes through when facing and recovering from this devastating disease.
Maria is a largely self-taught artist who, for over twenty years, has experimented with painted paper-maché and plaster to create large, highly expressive figurative 3-D reliefs. She was raised in Brownsville, Texas, and draws from Hispanic art and traditions, particularly ancient wall reliefs, for artistic inspiration. Her pieces have been exhibited in South Bend at Stanley Clark School’s Art for the Mind show, as well as the Colfax Cultural Center.
