Mary anne kluth
We love the how Mary Anne Kluth’s lushly imaginative work contains multitudes of visual information. Built from her own photography of theme parks and other fantastical places, and then using Photoshop or handcut collage, she makes new cohesive landscapes out of the fragments that she has collected and archived. The compositions often refer to the spectacular American landscape paintings from the 1860s by Church, Bierstadt, and Moran—painters who in their own way created fantastical images of real places.
Kluth's work has been exhibited widely in the Bay Area as well as Las Vegas, Portland, Seattle and Hong Kong.
She has an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and a BFA from the California College of Arts.
