Maureen Healy Mossman


Art is both a way into my life and a way out.  My work owes much to narrative and memory, but almost anything can trigger a painting – a stray line, fear, the downright pleasure of color, a poem, an unkind impulse.  Compelled and constrained by my own limitations, a piece often begins as one thing and winds up something else entirely.

I’m reluctant to examine or impose meaning on my work.  Because of a serious backwards streak, I’m acutely uncomfortable promoting it.  The act of painting itself is private, visceral and blind.  I trust in a seemingly haphazard intuition – and luck – to occasionally produce something true.
