About The Artwork

"Celestial Queen: Epsilon" one of my serial drawings… a series of serials really… present every permutation allowed by my drawing apparatus within a set of given parameters. A sort of family of drawings. Individuals yes, but with shared characteristics that present in various permutations. 20 x 20 inches, black pigment india ink on Aquabee smooth white plate bristol, 100 lb, acid-free, ph neutral. Drawing diameter is approx. 15-1/4 inches (38.7 cm) at widest point. Drawings is interleaved with acid-free glassine, rolled in a tube, wrapped and packed inside of corrugated box or another tube for shipping. My "Dark Star" and "Celestial Queen" series are created using rudimentary tools I design and custom make. They are akin to the speiragraph invented by Peter Hubert Desvignes in 1827, built to hamper money forgery and the spirograph, a mathematical device patented by Bruno Abakanowicz in 1881.

Going round-and-round is the central principle and action of Mary Wagner’s drawing practice. At the core, these drawings are simple, curvilinear paths arching about some absent center like an interstellar object flirting about a gravity well. The rigorous lines warm and complicate through repetition. Patterns pile on top of each other. The slim edge takes on form and depth, like cotton candy wisps or subatomic particles, cohering into something a bit more solid. Value and texture suggest dimension and movement. These things coax and combine into a sort of non-subject; or a subjective subject matter, inviting the viewer to project themselves. They are exercises in minimal purity, or expressions of chaos and order. They are complicated networks or psychedelic dreamscapes. Wagner was born and raised in rural Wisconsin. She lives and draws in Chicago. Her artwork is in private collections around the world.
