ITEM: You are offerding on a mixed media collage type exhibited artwork by the noted Minnesota artist Mary Helen Horty. It is essentially a collage and was conceived in a surrealist manner - the artist's inspiration as a student in her formative years was Rene Magritte. This is hand signed in pen by the artist lower right & features avant-garde imagery with a hip and relevant counter-cultural nod and aesthetic. Horty called these works paper montagesand started making these in the 1960's.Mid-century modern art by an important well listed Minnesota ArtistMat measures 14" by 17" with a window size of 8 1/4" by 10 1/2."100% guaranteed original and vintage as always from Grapefruit Moon Gallery.



CONDITION: The artwork is in very fine condition with some surface wear, mat shows very minor loss and soiling as seen--

The result is an image that the viewer finds simultaneously familiar and new. This psychological altercation allies her work with surrealism, yet many of her elements and her use of appropriation, humor and parody re-frame that surrealism within the context of postmodernism. Horty's work dismissed the grand narratives of culture and dismantled the boundary between high and low art. She used paper montage to create new allegories that operate between the viewer and the artist, as well as among the fairytale characters of her making. Horty's art extols the virtues of multiple narratives by creating intimate conversations between the puppets of her imagination and the viewer.

This suggests why her art engages such a diverse audience. Rather than beckoning the viewer to interpret the symbolism's and intellectual underpinnings of every art-making decision Horty made, her work asks the viewer to enjoy the humor. By employing images recognizable to viewers, she created a comfortable relationship between viewers and the work. Therein lies the "artists gift” a chance to share a humorous juxtaposition or witty play on meanings or words with Mary Helen Horty.
