Mary Coyle

“‘I’ve been finding it hard to tell the real from the fake…’ she said.” Mary Coyle lives and works in West Palm Beach, FL; originally from Philadelphia, PA.  She is a creator of fiction; adorning many disguises.  Her performance as actor in her own video work allow for the re-invention of self.  Issues of identity and gender are brought into question.  As performer, she inserts herself into an invented world.  In her constructed works, opposing imagery  is delicately composed and placed with elements of interior design within an ornate frame.  Glamour, beauty, and humor are employed seductions to worlds that comment on narcissism, femininity, and the spectacle. Coyle received her BFA from the Tyler School of Art, Temple University in Philadelphia PA; and her MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia PA.
