Over the last five decades, Corse’s practice has investigated perception, properties of light and ideas of abstraction—all through an innovative approach to the medium of painting, in which light serves as both the subject and object of art. For Corse’s first exhibition in Asia, Pace will exhibit a selection of eight new paintings by the artist, which continue her use of glass microspheres and a limited palette of white, black, and red acrylic paint to create simple geometric configurations, giving structure to the luminescent internal space of her works.


Mary Corse

Mary Corse investigates materiality, abstraction, and perception through the subtly gestural and precisely geometric paintings that she has made over her fifty-year career. Earning a BFA in 1968 from Chouinard Art Institute, Los Angeles, Corse developed her initial work during the emergence of the Light and Space movement in Southern California. Throughout the 1960s, she experimented with unconventional media and supports, producing shaped canvases, works with plexiglass, and illuminated boxes.
