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.
