Alice Oh (SA ’00), will exhibit her most recent series of large paintings which remain focused on the biologic, a theme she has developed over time beginning with her experience viewing drops of contaminated blood at 3,000 times their actual size. She explains that the “dichotomy between the harmfulness of disease and the beauty f the images was intriguing”.
Alice Oh’s exhibit will be hosted by The Phillips Museum of Art in the Dana Gallery from March 11 through April 11, 2010. Visit the museum site here.
She will give a gallery talk in the Dana Gallery at 4:45 pm on March 11. The exhibition and talk are free and open to the public. Please RSVP via Facebook.
