|Jump, Maria Covino, wood and ink, 2014.|
Maria Covino is well known for her impressive drawings of repetitive grid patterns of lines, numbers, words and stars. Her structured yet playful subject matter has been part of Gateway and the art world for many years, and has transferred quite nicely into this dynamic three dimensional relief.
