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.

The Bamboo Forest

Mary Ann Strandell
The Bamboo Forest II
32” x 192” x 2”
3D Lenticular Print Media

Mary Ann Strandell, The Bamboo Forest II, 32” x 192” x 2”, 3D Lenticular Print Media, 2016

The Bamboo Forest IIis a 3D Lenticular Print Media Installation of four 32” x 48” wide panels. It has two premises; virtual movement of time, and embedded landscape. The pictorial plane surface is layered with abstracted linear mapping striations, and recognizable landscape images. The elongated bands of color that overlay and interweavea parralax juncture allows for a surreal sense of time and movement.  The embedded landscape images were painted "on site", in the remote canyons of northern New Mexico.
Some of the images are sumi ink renderings of citrus trees from California.
These combined forms create a rhythm and patterning that moves and pulses with the viewer’s town movement in time, through the optical lens surface. This implies a mechanism or position with in The Bamboo Forest framework that is both active and passive, distant and intimate.

Lenticular print media is made of up two software programs, archival printed output lamented to an optical lens that works in sync with the software. Over 30+ layers of images are suspended and compressed into an animated visual environment with the work of optics, software, and high end printing. I began working with lenticular as a mediated and interactive painting space in 2000.
