Mary Ann Ginter is a listed American artist. Painter of acrylic abstracts of the Plains and Southwest, Mary Ann Ginter was born in Pawhuska, Oklahoma in 1926 and now lives in Annandale, Virginia. "My paintings are intended," she says "to convey the beauty I perceive in all nature. They are strong, semi-abstract landscapes that often include hard-edge geometric forms as a part of the overall design. Many times people are surprised they weren't done by a man." She stresses that "any attempted explanation of her paintings merely detracts from their own individual statements. The statement that matters is the visible one contained in the paintings themselves."

After growing up in Columbus, Kansas she became a member of the honorary art fraternity at the Kansas State Teachers College in Pittsburgh, Kansas. She also lived in California before moving to Virginia where she has studied privately for eleven years. The constant theme in her work, she believes, is optimism, because "the great outside world is a good place indeed." Her goal is to give each canvas a vitality of its own and to make each one communicate that nature is good, colorful, exciting and continually changing.

"My work," she says, "expresses a lifelong love for the myriad of colors and shapes of the Plains and the Southwest." To simulate a three-dimensional perspective, she uses geometry, patterns of light, and texture to interrelate and communicate the feeling of earth, sea, sky and space in an orderly, disciplined and architectural quality. Her paintings have been exhibited widely in federal and other public buildings in the Washington area.

This particular set of paintings was purchased from an estate in Oceanside California. The title is Sun - Span II. It is a triptych. It has wonderful colors of orange, salmon, yellow, gold, brown, amber , creams, and black. The frames are made of wood and trimmed with golden metal. The sizes are 37" x 37" x 2" for the center panel, and 25" x 37" x 2" for the side panels.

The colors and theme of this painting works very well with mid century modern, danish modern, and modernist decor. The colors are vivid, the paintings were well cared for, no damage. One might want to clean them because they have hung on a wall for about 40 years, but not in a dirty environment or smokey room.
The use of multi media gives these paintings a feeling of motion, you can see a build up of the paint and frothy foamy texture. Very unique, and very in vogue with mid century modern today. These were done in 1977.
