“Mixing media has allowed me to explore an inner world. I have recorded people’s wishes for miracles and embedded them into photographs of their arms. I have bottled memories in mineral oil. And most recently, I have created collages about the benevolence of darkness and the blessing of feathers.”

From her studio in Muir Beach, CA, Mary Daniel Hobson will speak about her mixed media photography and her creative process. This presentation will introduce you to several bodies of work and her book, Offerings, published by Datz Press. You will gain a better understanding of how she layers meaning, works with symbolic language and cultivates her creative practice.

For over twenty-five years, Mary Daniel Hobson has been exploring mixed media photography. Trained as an art historian, she was inspired by her graduate studies of Surrealism to look below the surface and mix photography with other media. Whether building layered collages, creating intimate still lifes or bottling photographs in mineral oil, she delights in the tactile and the symbolic. Uniting all of her work is the belief that art can convey the complexity of our psychological existence and help us make sense of and navigate an ever-shifting world.

Hobson’s work has been widely exhibited and is in numerous collections including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the offices of Twitter and the Datz Museum in South Korea. Her monograph, Offerings, was published in 2019 by Datz Press (datzpress.com). Her art also appears in Terry Tempest Williams’ The Hour of Land (Sarah Crichton Books, 2016) and the limited-edition artist book, The Man in Bogotá(Pacific Editions, 2015). She has mentored and taught at places such as JFK University, The Image Flow and from her studio in Muir Beach, CA. For more information, please visit her website. >
