Wild Color: Mary Mortimer
Oakland-based artist Mary Mortimer started out as a painter. Inspired by mentors Amos Kennedy and Alan Kitching, she’s been able to explore painting using type and ink. Every print of Mortimer’s is an artist’s proof, hand-inked and unique within the edition. Some are even printed over recycled prints. All of the type she uses is antique wood or metal and all prints are made using vintage presses in a variety of shops. NIAD is honored and delighted to be showing more than a dozen recent works from Mortimer.
