Intro to Webpage.
Marie-Andrée Allison is an accomplished artist with over 40 years of experience in various media: byzantine mosaic, egg tempera, fresco buono and printmaking. She describes her energetic art practice as having two intertwining forms: one objective and classical, the other conceptual and abstract. Her June show at Martin Batchelor Gallery presents a series called Bianco (Italian for white). The exhibition includes oil paintings, fresco fragments, intaglio prints, encaustic mixed-media and a mosaic angel wing. “The beauty of white fascinates me,” she says, “it promotes inner reflection and a variety of effects.” Themes in Bianco include the nature of consciousness in relation to space, time and multi-dimensional reality. Selected artworks in the show are featured below, as well as artist quotes.
