Mary Corse (born 1945) is an American artist who lives and works in Los Angeles, California. She is a member of the male-dominated Light and Space art movement of the 1960s, although her role has only been fully recognized in recent years. She is best known for her experimentation with radiant surfaces in minimalist painting, incorporating materials that reflect light such as glass microspheres. Corse received her B.F.A. from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1963 and her M.F.A. from the Chouinard Art Institute (now CalArts) in 1968.
