(American, 20th Century)
mixed media on paper
signed lower right. Purchased Sotheby's NY, c.2000. From Ask Art: Marthe Keller is an independent artist whose installations and assemblages explore painting on and off the stretcher. Her work grows out of the material conditions of its making, often incorporating found materials and pigments to make her own paint for maximum control over its viscosity, tranparency and intensity of color. Keller has been exhibiting internationally since 1976. She grew up in the Hudson Valley, New York and in Rome, Italy. She studied art at the Maryland Institute, Boston University and Queens College. Marthe lives and works in New York City where she teaches art at Hunter College and is co-founder of the BAU Institute international arts residency. Her work is represented in the Whitney, the MET, the MOMA and other public collections. Her grants and fellowships include the NEA, NYFA, MacDowell Colon y and others.
