Bright's Grove, Ontario resident Mary Abma is a science-based, transdisciplinary artist whose laboratories range from her yard in suburbia to the streets and forests of larger, diverse communities we inhabit and construct. Through the lens of her work, she offers points of entry into the ecosystems that weave all living beings together and sustain life. She acknowledges human destructiveness and responds by translating the rhythms and patterns that she observes in the so-called “natural world" into works that challenge the notion of boundaries and separation. A qualified teacher, Abma specializes in facilitating community-engaged artworks.
