My name is Mary Mecca. I am a dedicated studio artist based in San Francisco, California.
I create colorful, visionary artwork that aims to speak to the natural, indigenous human within us all. My paintings seek to sneak into your mind and break down socially-constructed concepts of what what it means to be spiritual. Viewing my pieces is sure to open channels of consciousness in the mind and allow new waves of thinking to permeate the inner being. With my jewelry, I am discovering how body adornment can reflect our instinctual spiritual state by framing the human body.
There is so much disharmony and strife in the world. We are surrounded by images of violence and suffering on a daily basis. These images sink into our subconscious and create a sense of fear and lack. In order to counterbalance this barrage of negative iconography, I strive to create art that embodies simplicity, beauty, and healing.
"Art is a material act of culture, but it's greatest value is its spiritual role, and that influences society because it's the greatest contribution to the intellectual and moral development of humanity that can be made." - Ana Medieta
