alice whealin: third patterns

On View: October 15 - December 18, 2016

On the Upper Level in the Wyatt Resident Artists Gallery, AAC presents Third Patterns, a solo exhibition by AAC Resident Artist Alice Whealin.

Whealin’s work reflects concerns and experiences through alternative landscapes and imagery of internal bodies.

She combines expressive image-making, formal processes, and direct working methods to produce disciplined painting.

The expressively colored wood panels and transparencies are at once playful and abstract though meticulously structured.

The works echo layered memories and experiences through varied visual associations, while simultaneously relaying a scientific process or a microscopic view of nature through means of intense color and form.

Whealin explores the expressiveness and beauty of color, drawing, form, and scale in these new works. The perception of the sublime becomes inherent in each of these elements.
