Mary Boochever approaches color "not just as an intuitive enhancing device for painting but as a subject worth pursuing for its own sake.” Finding the outward art of etching limiting earlier in her career, Boochever began a private mission to express herself visually in the area that called to her—color. Following this calling, Boochever creates beautiful silkscreens on handmade paper that focus on color and color relationships.
Boochever received her MFA from the Akademie der Bildenden Kunste, Munich University, Germany, where she studied under Bernd Meyer-Speer. She has taught at the School of Visual Arts, New York, NY and Lacoste School of the Arts, France, among others. The artist has shown extensively in group and solo exhibitions at Genovese/Sullivan Gallery, Boston, MA, Fuller Craft Museum, Brockton, MA, Annika Sundvik Gallery,New York, NY, and Rose Art Museum, Waltham, MA.
