Annalee Schorr

Usually optical and kinetic but sometimes political, my art always centers on pattern, geometry and grids. Use of unusual materials is a constant in my artwork: duct tape, plexiglas, saran wrap, as well as more traditional mediums. Often my shows are installed as a single unit, treating the entire gallery as a blank canvas to unify the various artworks.

My art is both conceptual and perceptual. It is conceptual because the creativity is in the idea; it is perceptual because it is meant to enhance the sensation of the eye, to be optical, kinetic and emotionally charged.

Although I don’t call myself a photographer, I often use photography for major projects.  I photograph images on my TV screen, or homeless people on street corners — so that these fleeting impressions, often ignored or deliberately tuned out, can be thoughtfully examined.

Approaching a gallery room as if it is a blank canvas, I have filled the space with black and white stripes or with bundles of shiny mylar.  Gallery walls have been stacked floor-to-ceiling with TV photos.

Collectors of my works include the Denver Art Museum, University of Wyoming Art Museum, Southern Utah State College, Littleton Colorado Hospital, and such corporations as Jones Intercable, Spectrum Communications and Lansing National Insurance Co.
