Summer studio shots with Mary Ann Strandell... [by Katie Peyton Hofstadter]

Mary Ann Strandell, "Tower/construction/Tribeca", 2019

This month, I am locked in the shimmery construction sites of Mary Ann Strandell. I snapped these process shots in her studio, and then we planted a geranium border in her garden. Her husband Michael Rees also creates fantasies: giant AR-enabled inflatables into which you can project your dreams or nightmares.
I like her paintings at this stage, when it looks like they could collapse. The light is gnawing at the western edge of the scaffolding; the light is smashed into the sixth floor balcony. It is drippy with life juices. At this moment, the painting still believes it can grow up to be an astronaut. (Is the painting female? Will there will be a space suit in its size?)
Mary Ann Strandell, "Tower/cell", oil on canvas, 2019

Review of "Afflatus" by Elizabeth Johnson

21 Jun 2019 _ Afflatus _ 5-50 Gallery _ Reviewed by Elizabeth Johnson

Afflatus, or divine inspiration, gathers a score of current artists who reuse classical stories or old master techniques, making the point that art history unifies taste broadly, organically, and randomly.
The work sorts into four categories, and several artists qualify for more than one. Alex Melamid, Suzanne Unrein, Janice Nowinski, Barbara Friedman, Sherie Franssen, Deborah Brown, and Kyle Staver convey Old Master rigor with morphing and flourishing style. Michael Mapes, Amy Hill, and Julie Heffernan stretch time by luxuriating in prodigious detail. Mary Ann Strandell, Sydney Cash, and Michael Rees separate from the subject to create space. And Betty Tompkins, Linda Griggs, Kathleen Gilje, Alexander Gorlizki, Charles Browning, Yonadav Greenwood, and Ruth Marten devise tangential narratives through reversal or replacement.
Like burgeoning nature, "Afflatus" evades consummation. Tasked with reinventing the tree, the artists start with the leaves, forget the trunk and roots, and dazzle with bits and pieces.

Press for Afflatus Exhibition

Musée Magazine  

Jul 8 _ Art Out: 5-50 Gallery Presents "Afflatus" _ Art Out
June 23rd marked the end of “Afflatus” at the 5-50 Gallery. The exhibition included twenty artists’ works, with their own modern twist on classical works, strengthening connections from the past and the present.
Afflatus serves as an homage to long standing techniques, while celebrating modern art. The exhibited artists draw lessons on techniques and compositions, while creating something rich with humanity. Continuing this tradition, the artists in Afflatus make a strong connection between past and present. Themes of feminism, politics, and even punk rock all walk alongside these recreations of these paintings, reminding viewers of the timelessness of century-old work.
The exhibition was curated by Suzanne Unrein and Amy Hill. Exhibited artists included Deborah Brown, Charles Browning, Sydney Cash, Sherie Franssen, Barbara Friedman, Kathleen Gilje, Alexander Gorlizki, Yonadav Greenwood, Linda Griggs, Julie Heffernan, Amy Hill, Michael Mapes, Ruth Marten, Alex Melamid, Janice Nowinski, Michael Rees, Kyle Staver, Mary Ann Strandell, Betty Tompkins, Suzanne Unrein.

Curated by Amy Hill and Suzanne Unrein.
Opens May 22nd - June 23, 2019
Opening Reception, Thursday, May 22, 7-10 pm

Afflatus Exhibition ~ Nymphs seduce satyrs with robust sexuality and knowing indifference.  Zeus’s eagle thrusts Ganymedes through the sky. Chiaroscuro portraits hold mysteries of now dead sitters, and nature morte comes alive through the dynamism of the Baroque. “Afflatus” loots from the rich playground of the Old Masters by re-examining, subverting, glorifying and reveling in their historical weight. The artists use whatever materials suit them –smeared paint making a mockery of an alluring temptress, digital imagery combining with oil to destabilize a traditional technique – to play out their own re-contextualization of enduring themes. ~
