About Mara Safransky

Portland, OR

​Mara is a Portland, OR-based artist working in paint and pastel. Her practice is fueled by a desire to offer viewers engagement with the evocative qualities of color, shape, and texture.

After growing up in the rural mountains of North Carolina and earning a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design, Mara moved to Los Angeles and began her professional art practice on a large easel in a small studio apartment. Since that time, her work has been shown in New York and Los Angeles, acquired by private collectors, and sold by interior design-focused retailers.

Mara describes her heavily-layered oil paintings as occupying the space between abstract expressionism and color-field painting. She sees each as an invitation into a freely-associative experience, one she intends open the door to interpretation and reflection, in an ever-evolving conversation between artwork and viewer.
