Alison O'Daniel

Alison O’Daniel engages materials and color in a tactile practice that extends across drawing, films, sculpture and performance to explore perceptual, emotional and bodily comprehension. She utilizes sound – and its synesthetic displacement onto materials – to explore narratives interwoven between the cinematic experience and objects in the gallery or viewing space. She has attended The Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and will be a resident at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA and the Bemis Center this coming year. She received a 2011 California Community Foundation emerging artist fellowship.
