ABOUT THE WORK
Blickle's work brings powerful female figures from classical mythology new life with a hefty dose of social media added to her subject material, and a strong contemporary feeling realist painting style. Shown reclining, presumably following a heady dance with the god of wine Dionysus, the Maenads exude leisure and no small degree of self-confidence in this engaging work. It is expertly composed and executed, full of exquisite detail that will bring you back to this piece time and time again. This edition, Lounge with Glitter, 2021, has hand-finished embellishments added by the artist to add even more glamour and light to the work.
Alison Blickle lives and works in Los Angeles. Her work has been exhibited in prestigious solo exhibitions around the United States, including shows at Kravets Wehby Gallery, New York, NY; OTI Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; and an Untitled Art Fair solo booth. Her art has found pride of place in group exhibitions at high-profile galleries around the world, including Deitch Gallery in New York, NY and Los Angeles, CA; The Hole, New York, NY; MOCA, Tuscon, AZ; Unit London in London, England, Jing Art Fair with OTI Gallery in Beijing, China, and Galerie Poulsen in Copenhagen, Denmark.
