Alison DeArruda, expressive & cubistically structured style
My work features an array of subject matter and is rendered in a colorfully expressive and cubistically structured style, done with the use of acrylic, watercolor, and pencil. Recently my focus has been on portraiture, mainly that of iconic and influential figures.
I aim to capture something within the individual that is identifiable and unique, and possibly even show a more vulnerable side. With portraiture, I feel it is vital to encapsulate the subject’s essence and true nature.
My main goal is to create insightful work that is recognizable as well as thought provoking, and to shed light on human identity and the inner psychological landscape.
