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.
