Mara Superior’s passion for Art History and the History of the Decorative Arts has informed her work throughout her career. She seeks to create beauty through the reinterpretation of historical inspirations synthesized with her own visual vocabulary and contemporary views. The idiosyncratic visual language that Superior has been cultivating over decades is largely rooted in porcelain but encompasses painting, art history, ceramic history, and contemporary art. Works in this series juxtapose art historical references beginning with the Egyptians through 17th-century European ceramics from a contemporary viewpoint. The resulting objects are rooted in the historical continuum.
