Alice Zinnes
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Park Slope



ARTIST STATEMENT: For me, making art is dreaming, being open, allowing forms, space and light to flow slowly through me, like the absorption of oil into cloth. Not illustrations or literal translations, my art transforms ancient myths to mysterious worlds where the boundaries between underworld and waking earth are traversable, terror coexists with joy, and loss yields to renewal. My art pieces, inspired by The Ramayana and Ovidís Metamorphosis, are quiet landscape narratives in the guise of abstract explorations. Emotional tensions are transformed into forms emerging from light and dark, suggestions of figures in space. Beginning with myths, I hope to create epic spaces where the world at its least understandable is made concrete. I have been at the center of the anti-fracking movement since 2008, and though lyrical and semi-abstract, my art directly relates to my environmentalism. Commercialism has turned our humanity into a deadly pastiche of plastic emotions: We buy to camouflage our alienation, uncontrollably burning fossil fuels that threaten our very existence. By expressing our deepest emotions, my art is a plea that we return to our spiritual centers where we value our fellow human beings, and our needs flow with the ecological life forces of the planet.
