Collage of shapes created from the works of Mary Abbott (b. 1921), who was featured in the Denver Art Museum's exhibit, Women of Abstract Expressionism.

Among the early exponents of Abstract Expressionism, Abbott creates powerful oil paintings in which she combines spontaneous, gestural brushwork with a highly creative use of color. Lauded for its vital feeling of immediacy, Abbott’s work reflects her desire to translate sensations into paint.
