Zandra Stratford Artist Bio:
--2015-- Zandra Stratford is a West Coast abstract painter whose work is continually evolving. Known for her textural, bold topographic pieces, her recent work is at once more defined and yet less structural. Employing a kind of subconscious semiotic, she works in muted tones punctuated by semi-symbols, almost recognizable repeating characters as though conveying a disrupted signal, or dream-remembered language. Preferring large canvases, she uses gradual iterations of monochrome, encircling strong statements of negative space, like a treeline emerging from fog. Stratford studied printmaking at the Victoria College of Art, after more than a decade’s experience as an advertising Art Director. This informs her work’s cadence, graphic sensibility and declarative confidence. The result is a series that is equal parts sumi ink painting and cyberpunk; architectural schematics and worn, tidal organic forms as arresting as they are serene.
