Mary Giehl

As a former registered nurse in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Mary Giehl, Carolinas HealthCare Artist-in-Residence, often tended to children following incidents of abuse. Those experiences spurred the creation of work that is simultaneously playful yet disturbing in its subject matter. Rather than present work as entertainment or an escape into fantasy, Giehl wants to produce work that agitates and troubles, but ultimately educates the viewer and prompts conversations about the current culture of child-adult relationships.
