This painting by Alyson Khan has a strong architectural presence. The diagonal "cables" create a tension that keeps the large neutral shapes tightly together, while the black vertical and horizontal foundation holds the piece aloft. The top red-orange square with "beams" coming out from both sides operates like a signal receptor and transmitter and/or functions as a balefire.

About the Maker
Alyson Khan is a Denver-based artist inspired and influenced by visual opposites: the clean lines of mid-century design and rough tribal art, Art Deco elements and raw and primitive gestural marks. Also in the mix is an attraction to two-dimensional icons and occult symbols, rustic chapels, and altars. She works to piece together a satisfying union of these visual influences that makes sense and feels calm. In process, she also conducts deep investigations into color and exploring its dynamic power to affect the emotions and the role it plays in constructing narrative.
