Maria Luongo

The beauty, power and mystery of nature/the sea was a strong influence on my early organic forms and my interpretation of shells, seaweed and wave like forms became motifs in much of my work. The sea came to symbolize the womb for me giving a female like form to some of my work and this anthropomorphic element in my work evolved into forms that are figurative and cubist. Living in Mexico and visiting ancient sites there, and in other places, also greatly influences my work. My interest in ancient places is driven by a desire to return to the mystical wisdom of the past.
