Daniel McCormick + Mary O’Brien

Daniel McCormick and Mary O’Brien create sculptures that have a part in influencing the ecological balance of compromised environments. They have collaborated for over twenty years to create environmental art installations which have a remedial trajectory. Their projects move away from an anthropocentric point of view. These works are intended to give advantage to natural systems, and after a period of time, as the restoration process is established, the artists’ presence diminishes, and the end result is remedial.

Daniel McCormick is an interdisciplinary artist/design professional with integrated skills in the fields of environmental design, sculptural installation and ecological restoration. He was educated at the University of California, College of Creative Studies and has a BA from the College of Environmental Design.

Mary O’Brien is a sculptor and creative director. She uses film, video and sculpture to explore the nature of shifting cultural identities in communities. She has a BA in Political Science from Marquette University and a Certificate in Studio Arts from UC Berkeley.

Daniel and Mary’s watershed sculpture in Breckenridge will be on view starting late spring and featured as part of the Breckenridge International Festival of Arts (BIFA) from Aug 9–18, 2019. Their residency and installation is supported through an Our Town grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, part of BCA’s ‘Ecoventions Breckenridge’ project.
