It is a double whammy when an artist not only has a beautiful talent to share with the world but also a point of view to slap across your face to make you THINK. It is artists like Alison Mortisugu that ignite a fresh curiosity in people that is necessary in todays world.
Being born and raised in Hawaii seems to have had an impact on Alison's take on the world and our mother earth. Her latest collection of hand painted landscapes on bare wood with the bark still intact is stunning and sends a message straight to your heart.
Taking on 18th and 19th century art that depicts the land as bountiful and full of hope, she uses irony by painting this beautiful dream on the very destruction itself of a beautiful tree that once was. The trees that she used for the piece were already fallen and going to be turned to mush, the collection is like nothing seen before and is visually stimulating.
