ARTIST | Alison Van Pelt
Alison Van Pelt begins this work with a perfectly painted, photo-realistic nude, then layers a scrim of linear marks over its surface to obscure the image beneath. The figure bends to the side, a pose that accentuates the soft curves of the torso. Even in motion, she is calm, relaxed, settled. But blurred by paint, the image also becomes an abstraction, as much about shape, light and contrast as it is about subject matter.
Unwinding is an act of disengaging. It can mean to free, to loosen, to undo. It can mean unfolding or untwisting. I see this subject unwinding, releasing, and softening, like the image itself is softened. The painted image is broken down to echo the subject letting go… as the image dissolves, it transitions to a gossamer, ethereal illusion. An imaginary state with an intangible presence.
