Mary Corse (born 1945) is an American player who lives and works in Topanga, California. Fascinated gone perceptual phenomena and the idea that fresh itself can facilitate as both subject and material in art, Corse's practice can be seen as existing at an crossroads in the company of American Abstract Expressionism and American Minimalism. She is often united with the male-dominated Light and Space art bustle of the 1960s, although her role has abandoned been fully qualified in recent years. She is best known for her experimentation with lustrous surfaces in minimalist painting, incorporating materials that reflect lighthearted such as glass microspheres. Corse initially attended University of California, Santa Barbara starting in 1963. She later moved upon to psychotherapy at Chouinard Art Institute (now CalArts), earning her B.F.A. in 1968.
