Maria Mayer is a German based artist who has dedicated herself to textiles. The critical examination of the medium "textile" is as much in the foreground as the reflection of rethinking environment and sustainability. In walk-in installations, the viewer should get the possibility to rethink the textiles so close to us in their purity and with their craft of the immediate resource.
Maria Mayer holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Textiles from the Burg Giebichenstein University in Germany under Bettina Göttke-Krogmann.
In her laboratory, she experiments with color and resources from our near environment, analyses traditional dyeing methods to apply this knowledge to her artwork.
The foundations of her work are based on highly professional technical know-how, which she acquired through her basic training as a tailor at the Bavarian State Theater in the power of craftsmanship.
