About The Me Y Tu

This print's internal framing resolution with alternating vertical bars is handsome.  The gradient shift from a mild pink to a resolute dark lavender color behind the rightmost figure is carried out with remarkable control.

LaMarr is an artist whose work is often imbued with her immense social consciousness, in this case matched by compositional elements demonstrating substantial maturity in their execution.

"Me Y Tu" translates to Me and You.

About Jean LaMarr

(Born 1945, Paiute/ Pit River) Originally Jean LaMarr studied electrical and mechanical drafting at Philco-Ford Technical Institute in Santa Clara, California while she majored in art at San Jose City College (1970-1973) and at UC Berkeley (1973-1976).

Since 1987 she has been a printmaking instructor at the Institue of American Indian Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico. This was preceded by her appointment to Artist-in-Residence by the California Arts Council at Lassen College in Susanville, California.

An active artist, her exhibitions are many and span the United States and Germany. Her work was included in an exhibition touring the US titled "Committed to Print", initiated by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. She also designs and creates beadwork, winning a blue ribbon for an example exhibited at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona in 1980.

Opening January 15, 2011 is an exhibit titled "California Dreamin': Reflections on Land and Culture" including the work of Frank La Pena, Jean LaMarr and Frank Day. This exhibit will run through July 31.
