Bird & Egg - Alise Loebelsohn
Abstract Multi-layered, luminescent
Brooklyn, NY, January 8, 2013. Alise Loebelsohn’s talents are in large and small-scale murals and paintings. She has a unique methodology of building her multi-layered, colorful abstract and semi-abstract works through the ancient art of plaster and gold leafing techniques. Her goal is to reinterpret the use of these age old traditions by transforming images through color and patterns to reveal their own deep and personal history. She wants her work to reflect light, and make the viewer think about where the light comes from, and the process by which illumination is achieved.
Prominence in Public Spaces
Alise’s work has been displayed in many important public spaces, including a large installation at the New York Aquarium on the Coney Island boardwalk, the old Yankee Stadium, and Times Square. While working in the Painters Union in NYC, Alise painted in places such as the White house, Grand Central Station and many boutiques along 5th Ave. NYC.
Although originally trained in large installations, Alise's artistry has been enjoyed by many families who commissioned her paintings to adorn their homes. In 2001 she started her own mural and decorative painting company called Pompeii Studios LLC. and has worked in a diverse range of commercial, corporate and private homes. Her work is recognized for its simplicity and are easily understood by all.
Alise graduated from Pratt Institute with a BFA in Painting. She studied in France and at the Art Students League in NYC. Alise worked as the only female billboard painter in the union. While there she painted the iconic DKNY ad on Houston Street, billboards throughout Times Square and on numerous highways around the city. Through this work, she became skilled at large-scale transfers of photographs and designs. Alise lives with her husband and two sons in Brooklyn, New York.
Her work has been shown in galleries in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and she is excited to introduce her work to the Greenwich community in February.
