We are happy to announce Allison Bianco's solo exhibition Cloud Level at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa Commons Gallery. Exhibition dates: January 7 - February 8, 2019. The exhibition was organized by Gaye Chan, Chair of the Department of Art and Art History at UH Manoa.
The exhibition highlights recent work that uses a combination of intaglio and screen print to depict landscapes diminished by massive oceans or infinite skies. Recent works include Pouring on Jamestown, that pictures the eastern side of Conanicut Island in Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island, where impending storms of layered clouds hang low over the land, the sea churns and vessels approach cautiously; Winter Flounder, based on an old freeway exit ramp that, during cold months, transports the driver to an icy world with stone cliffs that resemble a mountain pass; and Leave Your Troubles Behind where an oddly monumental sun casts a golden glimmer on the ocean, fireworks explode in the distance and a small fishing vessel hurries away followed by a shrouded sea creature.
