Mary Ann Peters combines form, line and symbol in her atmospheric and abstracted drawings and paintings. Peters states, "I want my work to address a sense of place misplaced - symbols locked in ambiguous spaces, timeworn yet active - archaeological dreams in contemporary settings, part fact, part fiction. My images include sources from my immediate environment, but also incorporate experiences encountered from my travels in non-Western countries. I believe that once beyond one's own culture, what we see and integrate is initially abstract, founded in incomplete information and committed to memory in fragments."
