Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Mary Patricia Warming

Artist, Curator, Gallery Owner

Germany
I create projects integrating Visual Art with Architecture & Science. By enhancing the elegance of exemplary architecture, the art remains a mechanism for contemplation while we remain awed by the surrounding structure.

The aesthetics of scientific information assimilates into my graphic prints- as do the inherent aesthetics of the architectural drafts on which many of my graphics are assembled. Allowances for the copyrighted materials used in these graphics are part and parcel of my artwork.

Each of my projects begin with my drawings of specimens from world-renowned museums of biodiversity and evolution. My project collaborators include: the American Museum of Natural History, Harvard Museum of Comparative Zoology, UC Berkeley's Essig Museum of Entomology, Naturkundemuseum, Berlin, and Directors of Conservation from the US Department of Fish and Game.
