For over twenty-five years, Mary Daniel Hobson has been exploring mixed media photography. Whether building layered collages, creating intimate still lifes or bottling photographs in mineral oil, she delights in the tactile and the symbolic. Uniting all of her work is an embedded belief that artwork can convey the complexity of our psychological existence, and help us make sense of and navigate an ever-shifting world.
Hobson’s work has been widely exhibited and is in numerous collections including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Albuquerque Museum, and the Datz Museum in South Korea. Her monograph, Offerings, was published in 2019 by Datz Press. Her art appears in Terry Tempest Williams’ The Hour of Land, and in the limited edition artist book, The Man in Bogotá by Pacific Editions. Hobson is also the co-author (with her daughter Anna) of the children’s book, The Wolf Who Ate the Sky, and the former Executive Director of the Arts & Healing Network. She lives and works in Muir Beach, CA.
