The Studio

The urban environment of Los Angeles is as much of a teacher and constant source of inspiration as the countryside of England where Maria Greenshields-Ziman spent her childhood. The studio is a constant work in progress, the walls pinned with textures, leaves, woven grasses, and specimens of all kinds – all of which make their way into the work. To see the artist in her studio is to understand her process, how sculptural sensibilities are the foundation of her visual language, with hours of layering and experimenting binding together technique and meaning. For Greenshields-Ziman nothing is left unexplored in the steps to making a new work and her studio is alive with the birth, collision, and confluence of various concepts forming simultaneously.
