This exhibition catalogue supporting Mary Webb’s exhibition, Journeys in Colour (Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, 2011-2012) contains images of more than 60 of Mary’s paintings, along with a collection of screen prints, drawings and collages including the series of paintings that were inspired by her time spent abroad in Utah. A pupil of the late Sonia Delaunay, Mary’s works are consistently square in shape and exist as an arrangement of vivid squares and rectangles. Webb admits that “colour is [her] main concern”, which accounts for the vibrancy of her work, but she also explains that she strives to avoid “having a centre, or part of the picture that claims attention more than the rest”.
