Mary Heilmann (American, b.1940) earned a BA from the University of California, Santa Barbara and her MA from the University of California, Berkeley. Her work plays with all the Modernist tropes of abstraction such as fields, grids, and dots, but reconfigures them into colorful and exuberant canvases. Her paintings are often installed in a homely mise-en-scene. With chairs and tables she constructs herself, inviting the viewers to sit together and contemplate her work as a social event. Mary Heilmann received the Anonymous Was a Woman Foundation Award (2006) as well as grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation.
