Faces of Earth

Alison Aune

Sunday, November 16 - Sunday, December 7, 2003

Central Gallery, Central Residential Area   

A native of Amherst, MA, Aune moved to Duluth in 1991 when she joined the faculty of the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Her work is represented in the collections of the Museum of American Art, the Walker Art Center and the Tweed Museum of Art.

Aune's paintings reference her Norwegian-American identity. Her paintings feature a central image with patterned borders which are responses to traditional designs. These borders reference Nordic-Celtic patterning which links her to her ancestral roots. In this way, Aune expands and builds upon, historic and domestic art.

Alison Aune spent a year in Trondheim on an American Scandinavian Foundation fellowship doing research on writer/artist Cora Sandell. Artists such as Gustav Vigeland, Harret Backer and Gerhard Munthe have had an important influence on her work
