Mary Koniavitis is a Greek-Australian artist currently living and working in Austin, TX. Mary's art practice explores mythology, ancient theater, subconscious states of being and personal—cultural memory. Predominantly she works with oil paint on canvas and ink, watercolor and collage on paper.
Through dreams and Surrealist-Dadaist techniques, such as automatism and collage, she gains access to the subconscious and the world of imagination. Through art, she is able to give shape to forces that inhabit the realm of dreams, to make visible universal myths, symbols and archetypes.
