ARTIST | Alison Van Pelt
Alison Van Pelt began this work with a perfectly painted, photo-realistic nude, then layered a scrim of linear marks over its surface to obscure the image beneath. The figure’s pose is free and open, a physical stance that mirrors a psychological state – open to infinite possibilities. The blurred paint represents a breakdown of barriers and constriction, the disintegration of the ties that bind us.
This very light white on white painting reminds me of living in Hawaii. In Hawaiian Kukui means light. For centuries Kukui nuts were a source of light in many forms. The oil was used as fuel to burn for light, they were used as torches, etc. Eventually they become a symbol of enlightenment, knowledge and learning, the name itself meaning light.
