Those who believe that the combination of striking composition and seamless artistry that defines the work of LuAnn Ostergaard is produced by nothing short of magic are wrong. The digital pigment print, miracle though it is, is starts with one of Ostergaard's digital close-ups of corroded, oxidized metal surfaces, as well as of the aged and weathered floors and walls of buildings. The limited edition image is printed on archival fine art paper and mounted on a hand crafted, painted and varnished boxed panel of birch and pine woods. The mounted piece is then textured with clear gloss acrylic gel medium for an interesting and protective finish.
Tappan Z eagerly awaits the delivery of a new dimension of Ostergaard's work, which combines her abstract photography with found metal objects. This results in a literal iteration of he "joining of the conscious and unconscious worlds" that Ostergaard sees to be the goal of art itself.
