The title of this piece refers to multi conversation connections called "party lines", that sometimes used to happen on old school telephone systems. Visually, the many loops, twists, and turns of my sculpture reminded me of this. It also reflects my somewhat chaotic feelings during this time of pandemic shutdown, trying to cope with all the new ways of being and thinking. Formally, I experimented quite a bit with my building process, as well as my surface application.

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.
