Mary Ott “Silver Grass IV”
The exhibit at Brookside Gardens will include monotypes with images of ornamental grasses. They are part of two series,  “Bouquet of Grasses” and “Silver Grass” series. "Ott’s prints suggest traditional Asian art, and some of them are printed on Japanese kochi or Thai unryu paper, adding vegetable textures to the images of vegetation. The pieces are beautifully made and unapologetically decorative. This work may perform merely the gentlest of twists on its natural inspirations, but it does so with skill and grace.”
