"If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing."

—Marc Chagall

Every piece of paper and canvas is a new territory to be explored by Mary Beth Cornelius. Drawings, music, and mood form the gestures that invade the space.

Vigorous mark making releases creative explorative line and form. Chaos and order emerge and resolve. Cornelius creates from an internal recklessness that abandons formal structure or accepted aesthetics. The result is art rich in content and expression finding beauty in the rawness and exposure.
