Review: Whitehot Magazine Review_ November 2017

Mary Ann Strandell, "For Baudelaire", Installation 15' x 15', 
ink drawing in situ with 3D Lenticular Print media, 2017

“For Baudelaiere” is a contemplative and performative installation which considers the notion of decentralized place through two distinct systems of experience; the large scaled hand-drawn garden motifs, with the counter active mediated lenticular print panels. These two worlds host a fleeting aspect of time and place that is perhaps at once, a waterfall, a street map, a transit system, a circuit, a song.

The garden motif is a montage from a long study on the garden genre meme, which I documented from historic hand-painted porcelain plates over a number of years. This composite holds seven partial garden renderings, that include 13th to 17th century China, Japan, Germany, and The Netherlands. The layered geometric lenticular presents a post-modern network of mapping and circuitry. Here these two worlds, still in their own orbits, coalesce a possibility in tandem with a revery of sudden leaps.
Mary Ann Strandell 11/1/17

Who among us has not dreamt, in moments of ambition, of the miracle of a poetic prose, musical 
without rhythm and rhyme, supple and staccato enough to adapt to the lyrical stirrings of the soul, t
he undulations of dreams, and sudden leaps of consciousness. This obsessive idea is above all a
child of giant cities, of the intersecting of their myriad relations.  —   Charles Baudelaire, Dedication of Le Spleen de Paris

The Byrdcliffe Colony

The Byrdcliffe Colony, also called the Byrdliffe Arts Colony or
Byrdcliffe Historic District, was founded in 1902 near Woodstock,
New York by Jane Byrd McCall and Ralph Radcliffe Whitehead[2]
and colleagues, Bolton Brown (artist) and Hervey White (writer).
It is the oldest operating Arts and Crafts Colony in America.
The Arts and Crafts Movement arose in the late nineteenth century
in reaction to the dehumanizing monotony and standardization of
industrial production. Byrdcliffe was created as an experiment in
utopian living inspired by the arts and crafts movement.[3]

First Friday Reception: June 2,  5-8pm

Fragonard’s Curve, acrylic on pigment print, 60x60", 2017

April Price Project Gallery is pleased to present The meme Salon, a pop-up gallery expose by artist Mary Ann Strandell  that explores the ideas of decentralized “place”.  Strandell considers historic artifacts and Period Rooms, along with real-time landscape renderings into collapsable and transferrable situations that denote place 
and algorithmic patterns with vernacular architectural renderings

The meme Salon expose presents a series of works that combine visual languages of digital media and analogue paintings.Some of these works specifically imbed large scale images within the hyperspace constructions of 3D Lenticular Print Media.

In celebration of Strandell’s recent acquisition to the permanent collection of NMSU by The Arts in Public Places, NM;  along with her recent artist-in-resididency at The Menaul School, and with her upcoming inclusion in

Mary Ann Strandell
Patterned Algorithm Interior
Acrylic on 3D Lenticular Print, 94”x 76", 2015

Mary Ann Strandell’s artwork Patterned Algorithm Interior, combines both abstraction and realism. Her abstract wave patterns are the back-drop for her hand rendered ink painting. The painted rendering is from a series of works based on the historical Period
Room, The Fragonard Room, within the Frick Museum in NY. The iconic room relays the baroque presence of it's French origin, by its rebuilt, staged environment. This artwork is a continuation of Strandell's interest in reconsidering our perception of history by combining modernism with the baroque, through images of nature and architecture.
Patterned Algorithm Interior is made from high tech and low tech materials, which include traditional painting, archival printing, three software programs and 3D lenticular optical lens fabrication. The algorithmic pattern first began as painting made in nature, from observation- a waterscape in the Rio Grande Gorge north of Taos, NM.
