Mae Engron
Untitled (City Lights)

circa 2000

About

Mae Engron (1942-2007) is a nationally recognized African American abstract painter. She is known primarily as a unique colorist who used layers of rich hues to reflect her emotions and environment. A graduate of Indiana University Herron School of Art, Engron intervened in her paintings to suggest clarity or confusion of her vision, as well as map her environment. This technique has regained prominence particularly in the works of Mark Bradford. This work is featured on the cover of the catalog Mae Engron: No Date No Title (2016).
