Maryanne Pollock's abstract work finds affinity with the Washington Color School, where the application of pure color creates glowing visual sensations. Her spontaneous and improvisational style explores the effects between nurture and nature through the creative process. Controlled shapes mimic the use of human genome symbols to signify scientific theories.

Having traveled extensively abroad, Maryanne Pollock's abstract paintings are deeply spiritual and transcend cultural boundaries to convey universal human emotions and experiences. Lines, paint splatters, and membranous cell shapes inhabit the terrestrial canvases. The strong line patterns touring her compositions take the viewer on a journey of self-discovery. The title of this exhibition,Transit, refers to the performative act of dialogue with individuals. Pollock encourages visitors to invest in creative conversation with questions like "Where are you going? Where are you from?"

After living in Egypt and meeting a Bedouin community, her newest work draws from Middle Eastern folkloric textiles and the hanging gardens of Babylon. Pollock's work began to take shape when tents and tent-making became central to her installations. By including the visitor in the collaborative experience, her painted tents serve as a point of rest for inspiration, a place for discovery, and place of refuge.

Maryanne Pollock received her BFA from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. She continued studying painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Corcoran College of Art and Design, and graduate painting at the American University. She is a certified art educator and docent with many years of experience. She represented the US at the Genoma Contemporary, contextual to the 2011 Venice Biennale and in the Arts in Embassies Program in Egypt. She has exhibited widely with solo exhibitions in Paris, Basel, and Cairo. Publications include Home and Design, Luxe, Traditional Home, Professional Artist (cover), and Create. Most recently, the Marriott Marquis DC purchased a sizable collection of Pollock's paintings for their beautiful new hotel in downtown Washington D.C. Pollock's work is included in the Bridgette Mayer Art Advisory in Los Angeles, CA and Philadelphia, PA.
