Artist Mary Ann Strandell is known for her lush paintings and innovative lenticulars. Her ability to synthesize the past with the future and create a new dialogue between art history, technology, science, nature and architecture, makes her artwork unique, original and unforgettable.
Strandell’s exhibition, The Conversation, explores her evolving narratives, combining her interests in architecture, nature and chinoiserie. Often the mix of visual languages in Strandell’s work weaves the energy of nature together with that of the city, each playing off the other.
In addition, there are singular works in painting, such as a close-up of a magnolia blossom or tulip, framed tightly, as an exuberant expression of spring. The paintings often re-appear in Strandell’s lenticular’s as disassembled and layered components that support, enrich and continue The Conversation.
