"The Moving Wall" Lenticular Print, Permanent Collection, Polsinelli Law, KC

"The lenticular print media has a strange mystery to it. It's layered space 
and shifting depth of field is obvious enough to invite viewers to look further, 
to investigate and contemplate the slippage of planes and images.
In my presentation on prints and lenticular media I will discuss the technical 
aspects of the media, as well as my relationship to the imagery, ideas and 
the context of my current working practice." 
The presentation will include a slide talk, and various examples of work
of lenticular prints to further the discussion.

Member Preview 5-6 pm
Public Opening 6-7:30 pm
Artist Talks 6:30 pm
Mary Ann Strandell’s paintings and installations feature iconic references to landscapes, architecture, popular culture, interior design, and the natural world. Her practice includes paintings that combine utopic concepts from the California Moderne with Asian- inspired Chinoiserie and three-dimensional ‘lenticular’ works, which are often large scale and site-specific. Strandell blends a rigorous studio practice with digital technology and new media. Her work is a form of Neo-Pop Baroque, at once contemporary, moody, familiar, ornate, and loaded with history.

     The Observer, “We’re not going to discuss the gender or sex of the artists involved in The Brucennial. As in previous years the show will consist of a variety of artists exhibiting work across all mediums, its not a curated group show it’s not an anointment ceremony into the art market or a codification of style. The Brucennial is a massive celebration of artists – knowns, unknowns, and known unknowns, the work they make, and the communities they build with each other.” (By comparison, women make up less than a third of the participants at this year’s Whitney Biennial, which also opens March 7.)

Artwork for "An Unsuitable Princess"

Artwork for new "experimental memoir" by Jane Rosenberg LaForge
Pre-book Launch February, 2014. Full Book Launch, NYC April / May 2014

"An Unsuitable Princess" by Jane Rosenberg LaForge
Artwork by Mary Ann Strandell includes the cover image and
20 collaged / layered studies for 3D Lenticular Prints.

My art work for An Unsuitable Princes, responses to the bifurcated text of Jane's experimental memoir. The Pop Baroque and California Moderne are rooted in my oeuvre. WIth Jane's text I have re-configured new drawings and paintings for my vast archived image pool. They unfold as a mash-up in my hyperbolic lenticular prints, activated by the viewer through an optical lens.    Mary Ann Strandell, February 2014 


An Unsuitable Princess:

A True Fantasy / A Fantastical Memoir

Jane Rosenberg LaForge

art by Mary Ann Strandell

An Unsuitable Princess: A True Fantasy/A Fantastical Memoir tells two stories simultaneously. In the first, which takes place in Renaissance England, a mute stable girl of mysterious talents and potentially dangerous parentage finds herself punished for saving the life of the boy she loves. The second story, told through a series of footnotes to the first, is situated in the late 20th Century and explain the inspirations for the first story. An overly talkative, solidly spoiled, middle class girl muses on the social and economic phenomena the author observed while growing up in Hollywood during the birth of the hippie movement, the sexual revolution, women’s liberation, and the growth of Renaissance England re-enactments. She does not save the boy she thinks she loves. Indeed, she may have hastened his death. Even years later, the only way she can acknowledge this failure is by spinning an elaborate fantasy that becomes the tale of a wretched orphan who turns out to be a princess.
