Allison Bianco: Cloud Level

January 7, 2019 - February 8, 2019
Mānoa Campus, Commons Gallery, Art Building

Allison Bianco is a printmaker who uses a combination of intaglio and screen print to depict landscapes diminished by massive oceans and infinite skies. Her vibrant prints explore nostalgia and inconsistencies of memory. Panoramic views feature impending storms of layered clouds that hang low over the land, while the sea churns and vessels approach cautiously. Recent works include the expansive "Pouring on Jamestown," that pictures the eastern side of Conanicut Island in Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island, diminished by a massive expanse of ocean below; "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.

SPECIAL EVENTS: All events are free and open to the public.
