In many ways, we three artists (Jennifer Turnage, Alison Woods, and curator Kimberly Rowe) are similar, in that we began our careers within the last 5-10 years. We are all painters and work with very contemporary ideas of abstraction. Turnage and Rowe tend to show more of the hand, and are interested in a wabi-sabi sort of approach. Conversely, Woods emphasizes digital exactness. Together there is a good mix of similarity and contrast, point and counterpoint.
Alison Woods is a painter whose work transforms digital information into aesthetic, phenomenological, and material meditations in paint. Her work draws from high tech, exploring a hybrid form of painting that is haunted by the future. She uses the computer to research, process and consolidate, to create impossible geometries, to scramble and re-contextualize information. She generates new codes and new patterns of complexity from within technology itself. She transforms the digital into the tangible materiality of paint.
