Alison Jardine: Intermittent Light
Laura Moore Fine Art Studios
April 9 through May 11, 2011
Alison Jardine: Intermittent Light opens at the Laura Moore Fine Art Studios in downtown McKinney, Texas, on Saturday, April 9, 2011. There will be an artist reception that evening from 7 to 10 p.m.
Where light and line become one at the intersection of science and art is where one finds Alison Jardine’s luminescent work. It leaps off the canvas, as does a solar flare, bursting forth into a kaleidoscope of light. “Light has so many symbolic and aesthetic associations that weave directly into my own life experiences and memories,” says Jardine.
Intermittent Light, Jardine’s latest oil on canvas series, explores the physics of photons, light’s most basic state, and its relationship to the movement of life and the recorded physicality of her own artistic process.
“It’s like a dance,” says Jardine, “One can see the procession through each canvas.”
A native of Yorkshire, England, Jardine hails from a family of artists. She graduated with honors from the University of London, and in 2003, moved to Texas with her family.
