Artist in Residence Alice Dubiel Presents
Contact: Charles Beall, 360 856-5700 ext 365
Seattle-based painter and printmaker Alice Dubiel will be in residence at North Cascades National Park Service Complex through November 19th.
Dubiel has exhibited her visual artwork in the United States and Europe during the past 26 years. Most of this work is concerned with ecology and its intersection with human land use. Since 1994 she has created installations and solo projects functioning as visual components to community-based land use dialogue in Seattle, Vancouver and Auburn, Washington and Fremont, California.
Dubiel employs different landscape representations to explore human interaction with the natural world and to search for a different visual language for the ways we think about land. She refers to many traditions including maps, Roman and Byzantine mosaics, Japanese decorative art, textile design, indigenous Australian paintings and shrine technologies of many cultures. Among contemporary American artists, this pan-historic and cultural approach is often referred to as pattern and decoration. Dubiel likes to use the term biocenology in this interface of cultural and natural systems because it is the study of communities and member interactions in nature; it is an exploration of systems, part of the science of ecology.
