Your Nature Somewhere Else: Alison Cooley

  • Page Bond Gallery 1625 West Main Street Richmond, Virginia, 23220 USA (map)

The fluid compositions in Alison Cooley’s new body of work, Your Nature Somewhere Else, explore the relationship between humans and the ever-changing, dissolving natural world. Cooley comments on the impermanence of places and scenes so familiar to us, as they are indubitably subjected to factors both organic and man-made change. In these works, phenomena such as the development, erosion and weathering of land over time are implicated through the juxtaposition of natural pigments and fluid inks over a synthetic surface. Her compositions exhibit a certain tension of harmonious dissonance through mark making, symbols and text-like passages that wash, bloom and reach in gestural abstraction. 

This exhibition is on view at Page Bond Gallery from September 6th through September 28th, 2019.
