“On paper; number, lines, numbers!”
Maria Covino was born in 1969. She lives with her mother in Needham, MA. Covino began attending Gateway in 1993. She enjoys working in different art classes, although her work always presents a constant aesthetic. Covino’s drawings of letters and numbers and endless. A constant in her practice is to continuously carry two pens and a specific drawing. This drawing she holds on to can take up to a year to be completed; over time she reinforces the piece with tape and found scraps of paper. Although this specific work is visceral, Covino’s primary body of work is quite structured and organized.
Covino’s artwork has been exhibited extensively throughout the northeast including the Outsider Art Fair in New York, Very Special Arts Gallery in Washington, DC, and the Sawhill Gallery in Harrisonburg, VA. Additionally she has been represented throughout Massachusetts at the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, Drive-by Projects in Watertown, The Mall at Chestnut Hill in Newton, the Open Door Gallery in Boston, the Berenberg Gallery in Boston, and the Gateway Gallery in Brookline.
