Mary Esch


Mary Esch is known for her incisive drawing style, large-scale limited edition wallpaper installations, and portraiture. Her imagery often depicts a portion of an entire circuitous journey on foot and is compelled by the inner-search of fable characters and how they often set out on foot to find answers. She also employs the drawing process of "automata", or drawing without a premeditated idea.

Her works are in the collections of the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis Institute of Art and private collections internationally. She is a two-time winner of the Minnesota State Arts Board Fellowship, a Jerome Fellow, and a Bush Fellow.

The artist lives and works in Saint Paul.
