Glimmer

Alison Norlen

Alison Norlen’s expansive drawings, often twenty-five feet in length and eight feet tall, include a body of work called Glimmer which details half imagined landscapes inspired by obsolete, sometimes demolished architectural icons. Artifacts of expositions, world fairs and pleasure sites like Coney Island and Brighton Pier, these structures frequently embody long-past futurist views of latter day utopias, thus resonate with the past and the future simultaneously. The now obsolete technological wonders of the past – follies and derelict bridges that lead to nowhere – hover between the real and the surreal alluding both to ostentation and decay. This work represents a transition to a major sculptural project built from welded metal wire and a pair of prototypical sculptures will be included in this exhibition.
