Alison Wilder

Alison Wilder’s background is in textiles, performance and installation. While in residence, Alison installed “evolving colorway” on a landing near The Barn. The installation/performance was a system to mass-produce paintings from recycled fabric, recycled house paint and handmade equipment. Designed to resemble an assembly line, the system generated close to a hundred three foot by four foot paintings using a regular process, yet each painting was unique in its color scheme and patterning and manifested a tension between personal expression and systemized control.
