Maria Coletsis works with issues concerned with identity and sexuality. Primarily using photography, Maria is an artist who incorporates into her diverse works: painting, digital media and computer installations. Since receiving her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, she has exhibited her artwork in galleries internationally. Her photographs were included in the East London Photography Festival, chosen by the curator of the Whitney Museum for the Viridian Gallery open call in New York and solo art exhibition and book launch at the De Luca Gallery in Toronto for her recently published photography book, Behind the Whip: Dominatrix. She continues to investigate and photograph subculture subject matter and has introduced elements from nature to explore our human nature.
