Alison Kudlow’s work explores personal and collective mythologies and how they define purpose and place for both the individual and a society as a whole With each piece she creates new myths about our origins and our place, culling from both her memories and those of the cultural collective. She shows a particular interest in how both these narratives--memories and mythologies--become distorted and evolve as a result of changing vantage points or perspectives.

Kudlow’s myths tend to deal extensively with the human body in physical terms and with its relation to natural surroundings. Influenced by ancient work, particularly Dorian and Athenian ruins, both the paintings and objects rest on a history of figurative representation and object making as a form of worship. The work of Tim Hawkinson and Elliot Hundley serve as inspiration for ways in which the human body and ancient mythologies can be reconstructed to create new modes.

The artist lives and works in Los Angeles.
