Inhibition by Mary Aldrich Senior BFA candidate Mary Aldrich's rich yet subdued paintings of the female form are introspective and mysterious. Mary says of her work: "These works involve the idea of dreams, fears, vanity, feelings, and most of all self-expression … The figure itself represents the loving, the secret, my personality, and the understanding of myself. My body wrapped or surrounded by drapery has to do with uncovering my spirit and discovering who I am as a person." Her website can be found here. On display December 2000.
