Mary Ann Strandell
September 5, 2014 – September 27, 2014
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.
