Mardi’s current body of work is inspired by an evolving local urban environment, urbanization as a condition, and contemporary culture. Working for several years from her Venice, CA studio, she was viscerally impacted by the changing neighborhood and demographics, including the noise and energy of new construction- space-saving new buildings, now vertically constructed to unexpected new heights — marginalizing once amply sunlit creative spaces — and graffiti of all shapes and sizes most often depicted on the grey backdrop of concrete which has now become rampant as an exciting urban art form communicating an evolving cultural diversity. As an abstract artist, Mardi typically communicates a theme and tonal palette with pattern, mark making, layering and textural effects through mixed media and collage. She strives to communicate beauty and elements of design readily visible in virtually all aspects of everyday life, allowing herself the freedom to express without judgment or boundaries.
