Marcy Hermansader

Marcy Hermansader’s mixed-media work alternates between an inward exploration and an engagement with issues in the larger world—such as war, industrial accidents and the experiences of people with disabilities. The artist’s unique painting style employs a variety of materials that evoke the natural world, including thread, collage, fabric, paint and colored pencil. Hermansader’s purposeful choice of materials grows out of the subjects of her work, which are often sylvan, otherworldly landscapes and renderings of flora and fauna.
