Alison Blickle Biography
B. Oct 15, 1976 – Lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, US
Alison Blickle’s paintings depict women engaged in mysterious ceremonies. Each exhibition is presented as a narrative, exploring powerful female archetypes found in mythology. Blickle’s recent work reimagines ancient myths, seeng the stories in our modern world, and weaving their themes into our current social and political happenings. Figures pose in theatrical, choreographed movements, reflecting Alison’s belief that art making is ritual, and that all ritual is performance.
“I’m interested in creating images of women supporting and connecting with one another. I am part of a community of incredible women~ artists, witches, midwives, and revolutionaries, and it informs my work big time.”
Blickle has exhibited widely in the United States and Europe, with an upcoming solo exhibition at Over The Influence in Los Angeles, and recent solo exhibitions at Kravets Wehby Gallery in New York and Five Car Garage in Los Angeles. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at MOCA Tucson, Nassau County Museum, Deitch Projects, New York University, The Hole, and Beers London. Alison received an MFA from Hunter College in New York in 2009, and a BFA from California College of the Arts in San Francisco in 2006. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
