New Exhibitions from Caroline Allison and Alex Blau

Zeitgeist Gallery is pleased to present “A History of Snow”, an exhibition of new work by Caroline Allison. Focusing on the realities of ourthe present and quickly changing landscape, the images included here act as historical preservation of a once-pristine ideal and a nod to the illusory qualities of the photograph itself.  In this series of photographs and cyanotypes, elements of the prototypical landscape are translated into two dimensions.  Sun, snow, and rain are referenced throughout these images, but also the element of time- a constant reminder of the unfolding disruption of our landscape through accelerating climate change.

Caroline Allison was born in Atlanta, GA and now lives and works in Nashville, TN. She received her BA from the University of the South, Sewanee, TN, and her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has exhibited extensively in the USA in both solo and group shows. Her commercial photography has appeared in Garden & Gun, Travel + Leisure, and The Wall Street Journal among others.

“Chasing the Sun” is Alex Blau’s third solo exhibition at Zeitgeist Gallery. Blau’s new body of work  represents a new stage of evolution in her continuing project examining the nexus of gesture, color and complex abstract space. Utilizing her distinctive mix of brilliant color, exquisite surfaces and complex visual gesture, Blau has produced some of her most dense and mystifying works to date. Alex’s geometric paintings draw from a variety of sources and have unexpected associations. By variously utilizing graphic languages and surprising paint applications, Blau’s work both points to abstraction’s open-ended possibility and highlights its incorporation into our shared culture. This exhibition will comprise over a dozen new canvases as well as a variety of works on paper. These works command the viewer’s immediate attention and unfold with prolonged meditation of their strange and familiar landscapes.

Alex Blau is an artist and educator living in Nashville, TN. Alex has had solo shows at several venues, including Firecat Projects in Chicago, Gallery Seomi in Seoul, Mark Moore Gallery in Santa Monica, Kevin Bruk Gallery in Miami, Barbara Davis Gallery in Houston and the New Britain Museum of American Art. Blau is a member of the COOP Curatorial Collective and teaches at Vanderbilt University and Austin Peay State University.
