I had been searching without success for a new studio space. I was even starting to consider moving out of state, when suddenly I found what I was looking for in my own neighborhood, making my move much easier than expected. I finished Betwixt & Between just prior to my move, and the title reflects my state of mind while I was creating it, as do the starting and ending points of the sculpture pointing in different directions. Although abstract, the form has human body reference, and the surface is a new direction for me. I created a thin acrylic film and collaged it onto the surface prior to sealing the entire piece.

Mary Oros lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her concrete sculptures are sensuous, deceptively delicate, and seem to defy gravity. In 1975, she attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Maine, where she received the Purchase Prize, and in 1977 earned a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art, Ohio, where she received the Agnes Gund Award. Oros has led careers in product design, creating contemporary concrete garden planters, contemporary cast bronze furniture hardware, and contemporary cast resin costume jewelry. In 2005, as a gift of the Seward Johnson Atelier, her sculpture "Henry Takes His First Steps" was replicated in aluminum and installed at Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey. Her sculptures have been shown at the SFMOMA Artists Gallery, represented from 2018-2020 by Coda Gallery in Palm Desert, Ca., and since 2019, her work has been represented by Jennifer Perlmutter Gallery in Lafayette, Ca.
