SEPTEMBER–OCTOBER 2004In Mixed Greens’ second show with Mary Temple, she will exhibit her photo collages for the first time. In Postcard Skies, Mary has printed the small-scale photographs, hand-cut the facades and removed their windows. Juxtaposed behind the buildings and fragments of buildings, Mary has put the great blue sky of Arizona, her home state. The absent windows and the Arizona sky begin to communicate ideas of longing, dreaming and travel. They become vessels for hopes and aspirations.
When Mary moved to New York City, she would tell people she was from the Southwest and they would undoubtedly respond, “I’ve always wanted to live there.” Through these photographs, Mary shares the familiar and the exotic, the home and the home away from home.
