Modern Eden Gallery presents ‘A Lovelorn Theft’ a solo exhibition of new oil paintings byKari-Lise Alexander.
A Lovelorn Theft is inspired by tales of swan maidens and selkies of Nordic folklore. This series features mysterious and beautiful creatures that shapeshift by shedding their animal skin into the form of human women. Each piece withinA Lovelorn Theft freezes a moment in time, placing the viewer in the role of a lovelorn voyeur, who spies these beautiful creatures for the first time. The artist’s careful attention to detail and adept brushwork describe subjects that are ethereal and otherworldly, yet rendered to a specificity that begs temptation.With a historical nod to the Pre-Raphaelites and painters of the Victorian avant-garde, Kari-Lise Alexander debuts a striking new series rooted in Norse mythology and the mysteries of the heart.
Kari-Lise Alexander’s work is rooted in the old folklore of her Scandinavian heritage as well as inspired by her home in the Pacific Northwest. Her style captures the unique qualities of both her heritage and her home. Combining them she’s able to create surreal worlds and explore common themes between the two. Kari-Lise’s work often reflects these worlds by the women, nature, and animals painted in them. Her work tends to leave the viewer feeling as if they are experiencing the same private moment in time as the subjects. Kari-Lise works from her home studio in Seattle, Washington where she lives with her husband, two poodles, and two rabbits.
The opening reception for A Lovelorn Theft will be held at Modern Eden Gallery on Saturday, September 12, 2015 from 6 pm–9 pm. Kari-Lise Alexander will be in attendance at the reception. The exhibition will be on display through October 3, 2015 and is free and open to the public.
