Alison Jardine is an artist from Dallas, TX, USA. The artist’s work deals with light and nature, and psychological as well as physical wilderness. Lines representing the concept of the photon moving through time and space, and linear representations of tree branches are also featured in her work. These motifs strive to capture the beauty of our natural world, and give the viewer a sense of freedom as they journey into their own inner wilderness.
“In creating my art, I try to show the world in a new way, to make people really look and see what I am showing, to be moved to a new understanding or outlook, a process involving the mind as well as the eye. For me, color needs no words to help us react to the feelings and thoughts it can provoke, and in this way it is an important motif in my work. ” the artist tells us.
Dan Flavin, Olafur Eliasson, and James Turrell are some of light artists that inspire Alison. The artist was selected by jury and public vote to create a painting to be displayed for two years on Henderson Avenue in Dallas, TX, and was the Grand-prize winner of a Dallas-based competition in 2009 to win a free studio & gallery space. A collection of the artist’s works, including some from her latest series, Intermittent Light, can be seen below.
