Mary Herbert is a London-based artist. Her work was recently included in New Contemporaries 2019 at Leeds Art Gallery and South London Gallery. Mary studied art at Goldsmiths College London where she developed a fascination with the materiality of the photographic image and it’s unreliability as a container of memory, and later at the Royal Drawing School, where she re-connected with the physical and unconscious aspects of image making through drawing.

Her current work is a series of small, dream-like pastel drawings formed of a composite of feelings, lived-sensation, unconscious processes and observation.

I See You III is part of a body of work made since the start of lockdown. Eyes have been a recurring symbol in recent drawings, sometimes hidden or disguised, but in these three drawings there is a definite gaze outwards, not quite confrontational, but watching. ‘
