Mary Hambleton (1952–2009) was based in Brooklyn and exhibited her work in the US and abroad at venues including Leslie Heller Gallery, Littlejohn Contemporary, and Pamela Auchincloss Gallery (New York), and the Machida City Museum (Tokyo). Her many honours include the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial, Adolph Esther Gottlieb Foundation, and two Pollock-Krasner awards.
Hambleton’s long-standing interest in scientific observation, from astronomy to biology, was expressed through the language of painterly abstraction over her lifetime. Diagnosed with advanced melanoma in 2002, she defied the odds, living another seven years. After the onset of her illness she slowly began to include images of extinct species, arcane scientific mythologies, and then, later, medical scans of her body, such as in this example from her PET Series dating from 2006–2008.
