Artist Statement

Mary C. Angers, multi-disciplinary artist, was born in Manhattan on July 22, 1958. She has resided in Long Branch, New Jersey for the past 20 years. Working in two and three-dimensional media as well as video, television, light, and computer generated work, she has shown extensively in Manhattan, New Jersey, France, California, Florida and other states around the United States, as well as doing public artwork around the United States, Canada, and abroad.

The Butterfly piece is about fractal geometry and how it can create all the forms in life - human, vegetable, animal, and synthetic. It is also about giving birth to a Butterfly. The patterns in color on the wings are the caterpillars giving birth to the Butterfly.
