In developing her own color language, Mary Boochever has
explored sources as diverse as the Kabala and Goethe’s Color Theory. Boochever’s painting, sculpture,
and installations draw the viewer into the immediacy of the color experience. Born into a Washington, D.C.,
Foreign Service family in 1954, she later studied at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich, Germany, under Mac Zimmerman,
Günther Frühtrunk, and Paul Meyer-Speer. Relocating to New York City in 1978, she taught at the School of Visual Arts and guest-lectured
at Yale University. After moving to Long Island in 1993 she taught at Suffolk Community College in Riverhead and Lacoste School
of the Arts in France. The artist has shown extensively in galleries and museums in the U.S. and Europe. She currently lives and works in Sag Harbor, New York.
