About the Artist: Mary Branson
Surrey-based artist Mary Branson is best known for her large scale conceptual light sculptures and installations, particularly the iconic 'New Dawn' 2016 sculpture in the Houses of Parliament, which celebrates the centenary of the Suffrage movement. This is the first permanent piece of contemporary abstract art in the Palace of Westminster.
Branson has also created light and sound works for the London 2012 Olympics, Royal Holloway University and most recently 'Harvest', a huge site specific installation at Box Hill Surrey in collaboration with the National Trust, highlighting the plight of farmers facing climate change.
Using familiar objects and materials, and experimenting with scale, light, colour and multiplicity, Branson wants to form new environments that are stimulating, playful, and questioning of the existing polemics concerning art and the space it inhabits.
