Maria DiMauro


Maria DiMauro during her exhibition at Cerulean Arts

Give me clean floors, lentil soup, and a glass of dry wine: Real art made outside the space of the page, and within the margins of everyday life. I used to think that my work was about big themes -Death and Resurrection, Transgression and Forgiveness. But I have come to realize it is about something else entirely, something little -- a single touch. It is without doubt a woman’s touch, the kind that can distinguish the particular quality of the abundant wavy tresses on each of my three children’s heads; the kind of touch that can reach across years to remember how it felt to squeeze my mother’s hand. Art is, after all, the best sort of imitative magic. For a brief moment, one can believe, with absolute conviction, that it is possible to touch what cannot be seen.
All of Maria DiMauro's proceeds from the sale of her artwork during the exhibition will be donated to The Nature Conservancy and The American Bird Conservancy.
