Description

“Sticks and Stones”

Nicole Alger Explores the Beauty of Simplicity

In a major diversion from her portraiture work, Washington and New York painter Nicole Alger’s newest collection consists mostly of minimalist still life work using earth tones. Entitled “Sticks and Stones,” it will be on display at the Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery in Washington from October 6 through November 17.

“Perhaps my greatest influence is Asian scrollwork with its simple palette, sparse composition and strong design elements,” says Alger. “Using ancient human symbols such as rocks, stones, eggs, and tools, my work is designed to evoke an animism where everything in existence has a life and an energy.”

Alger is a graduate of Duke University and the Florence Academy of Art. In the past year she was a finalist in the members’ show of the Portrait Society of America and was included in the juried American Women Artist’s show at the Haggin Museum. She also paints portraits pro bono of adoptive children for the charity Painting for Good Causes.
