“Mary Brodbeck’s Japanese woodblock prints reveal ethereal, quietly structured landscapes. Soft colors, achieved through watercolor inks, shift subtly across the surface of the page, conveying the calm of a moment of stillness and gentle light. Within Brodbeck’s images of flora and fauna, earth and sky, tightly controlled patterns are revealed, the hand of the artist responding to and enhancing natural rhythms and shapes. The final effect is one of contemplation, an exploration of a single instant, and all of the mysteries it holds.” ~Art Martin, Senior Curator, Muskegon Museum of Art
