Works of Alison Haley Paul: 10th Year Anniversary Showcase

ÆRENA Galleries and Gardens invites you to celebrate this month’s exhibition featuring the incredible works of Alison Haley Paul.

Alison Haley Paul is a contemporary painter of lavishly textured landscapes full of nuanced color. Her work conjures up connotations and geographical memories: that summer you spent at the beach, the tree where you went to think, the path up the hill behind school, the view out the car window on the way home. The places she paints may not be physically specific, but they are immediately recognizable and designed to trigger nostalgic feelings and memories. Paul also seeks to give a sense of grounding with both balanced yet surprising color, and a sweeping horizon. Paul’s background in ceramics and interior design led her to a love of texture. While studying the weave in fabric and how it influences color, Paul began to paint texture. She begins with a charcoal gray canvas and uses a palette knife, mixed oil paint and cold wax to create her dynamic lines and intricate textures. When viewing her work at 18 inches, there is intensity; at 18 feet, there is serenity, allowing the work to take on new meaning and adding to the viewer’s own personal experiences and memories. Paul majored in Art and Design at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY and also earned a BA at the Design Institute in San Diego. Her work has been exhibited in numerous museums and solo shows, and is included in public and private collections worldwide, including the Triton Museum in Santa Clara, CA; Oceanside Museum of Art; San Diego Museum of Art; Coronado Museum of History and Art; the Museum of the Living Artist in Balboa Park; Newport Art Museum in Rhode Island, and SCOPE art Miami in Miami, FL.

We invite you to experience this exhibition at any of our galleries or online. Please reach out to your Art Consultant for more information.
