Painter Alison Scherr


INHERITANCE 4 X 5.75' ACRYLIC AND HOUSE PAINT ON DROP CLOTH

After receiving a BFA in photography from Syracuse University, I worked as a prop stylist in New York City. Eventually I found that what I wanted most to do was to paint. Before I begin a new work, I spend time outside in nature, and inside museums. The architecture, history, stories and natural images bubble up together and create new ideas. Growing up, I spent hours in museums and poring over art books. Recently my process has included an awareness of my own movements and laying those in marks across a page. This has pushed me to make paintings that are larger than I am. I interpret the movement of light and patterns in nature, images unaltered by the human hand.

My work contains elements of the unfinished and abstract. Each painting has a story, a hidden message. This is left to the viewer to discern, it's a personal inspiration, unique to each thought. I work with industrial materials like plexiglas and aluminum and heavy duty canvas, as well as fine art paper and canvas. My works are usually a combination of house paint, acrylic, spray paint and pencil or pastel.
