Extended Label Info: Marie Lannoo has developed a lengthy career investigating how we perceive colour and light through the optical effects of her two-dimensional work. In a series of works, in which “Net Talk” is a part, considers how visual effects like colour, are created digitally through binary patterns of ones and zeros. Lannoo has created and extensive body of work that continues to explore the use of different media and techniques to create new visual sensory experiences, merging science and art in interesting ways. Marie Lannoo (1954 -) was born in Delhi, Ontario. She earned her BFA (1980) at the University of Saskatchewan, studying painting with noted abstract artist Otto Rogers, and participating in the Emma Lake workshops, the Banff School of Arts, and in Virton, Belgium. Currently based in Saskatoon, Lannoo is known for her rigorous experiments with the materials, creating abstract artworks that play with the physical properties of surface and light, including prismatic foil, interference paint, and mineral powder paper. Her artwork has been exhibited internationally, and is held in private and public collections, including the Canada Council Art Bank.
