Illuminexus

illuminexus
Jon Carver, Marietta Patricia Leis, 
Edwina Hawley Milner and Mayumi Nishida  
June 17-August 31, 2017
Artist Reception: Saturday, June 17, 5-8pm





April Price Projects Gallery is pleased to announce, illuminexus a visual art exhibition of four artists featuring a confluence of diverse aesthetic sensibilities that find commonality in a fascination with light and color.  iIlluminexus transcribes the circle of light that brings us together.
  Marietta Patricia Leis will present her series of abstract paintings sourced from her time at the Gullkistan Artist Residency in Iceland. These works find inspiration in the contrast between hours of winter darkness, and the splendid display of Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights. Leis is a multimedia Albuquerque artist of international repute.

 Edwina Hawley Milner applies metal leaf to brilliantly hued paintings, based upon natural forms and organic abstraction. Her work evokes late Byzantine minimalism and the Japanese tradition of kintsugi, in which broken pottery is repaired with gold. Milner lives and works in Santa Fe, NM and was instrumental in founding the NM State Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
 Mayumi Nishida is an installation artist with a particular focus on light, and interactive spaces. In her Inverted Pyramid pieces she employs silk, Japan’s first industrial material, to build light capturing structures that question hierarchy.  Plenum, originally exhibited in Osaka, Japan is an evolving collaboration with her husband, Jon Carver combining silkscreen imagery, iridescent transparency, and optical illusion. The couple lives in Lamy, NM.

Mary Ann Strandell : The meme Salon



Mary Ann Strandell
The meme Salon

May 30 to June 11, 2017

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, and vernacular architecture.  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. Other works include Strandell’s "Outdoor Studio" work done on site in the canyons of New Mexico.

In celebration of Strandell’s recent acquisition to the permanent collection of NMSU by New Mexico Arts; along with her recent artist-in-residency at The Menaul School, Albuquerque, and with her upcoming inclusion in the international Currents New Media 2017, Sante Fe, (June 9th -25th) we invite you to

join us for a First Friday ARTScrawl, June 2nd, from 5:00 to 8:00pm.

New Mexico Arts: Recent Acquisition to the Permanent Collection, NMSU

Gallery News: April Price Projects Gallery is pleased to announce
the recent acquisition of Patterned Algorithm Interior, by Mary Ann Strandell
to the permanent collection of New Mexico State University, Las Cruces.
The purchase was made possible by New Mexico Arts,  a state arts agency
and a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs.
Mary Ann Strandell, Patterned Algorithm Interior, 94”x 76” (framed)
Paint on 3D Lenticular Print, 2016. Permanent Collection of NMSU, Las Cruces 



























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 acrylic
painting of the historical Period Room, The Fragonard Room within the Frick Museum
in NY.  This artwork is a continuation of her interest in ideas of decentralized place.  Strandell uses historic image artifacts, along with real-time landscape renderings as collapsable and transferrable situations, 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 a 3D lenticular optical lens fabrication.Strandell first began the artwork by painting in nature, from observation, a water-scape in the Rio Grande Gorge  north of Taos, NM.
