April Price Project Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition with four artists whose work brings together the 
metaphor of the artist’s perception in the embedding space of landscape. In these artworks, the signifiers and
metaphors of the constructed pictorial plane are presented in the genre of landscape. The show implies a
mechanism or position with in a framework that is both active and passive, distant and intimate.
Artists Cindy Dominguez, Elaine Roy, Mary Ann Strandell, and Susan Zimmerman work with painting, drawing, photography, prints, and mixed media. The spatial intersections of these artists work come
together to form the Embedded Landscape.

Cindy Dominguez is an artist and teacher living and working in Albuquerque, NM. Her most
recent photographic series of internal landscapes pose subjects as dreamed
sequences with hand-sewn thread into the photographic image. These combinations
act to sublimate altered states of the viewer and the maker.

Elaine Roy is an artist living and working in Albuquerque, NM. The spectrum of her work combines encaustic,
oil, and graphite with photographic elements. There is a physicality to her earthy painted topographies.
Yet it is through her intuitive process of layering and building, re-drawing and excavating levels that
reveal traces of present and past landscapes. The photographic segments act as demarkations within these compositions.

Mary Ann Strandell’s works are a movable terrain between image, media, and their myriad histories. Her
work in Embedded Landscape is an assemblage of imagery from her outdoor oils with drawings and
algorithmic components. The subject is the intersection of place, both wilderness and urban . She works 
in the NYC area, and travels often to work in New Mexico with her roving Outdoor Studio practice.

The artist Susan Zimmerman lives and works in Corrales, NM. In her fluid, calligraphic abstractions
Zimmerman uses handmade papers with Japanese sumi ink, collage and acrylic. She considers
these spacious works as a changing landscape of layers. There is a sense of the arabesque with
aspects of earth and plant life in her constructs.
