Alice Ledogar Denison, b. long time ago, NYC. Currently living around the Bay State.

My painting is an exploration, an excavation, of decoration and its symbolic possibilities. Flowers are my usual means. I came to them through the fabric, embroideries, and needlepoint that my grandmother and her sister worked with throughout my childhood, which filled my house growing up. My interest is in expressing what I experienced as the true emotional and psychological content of these familial stitches, which hid so much pain: in each cheerful decoration, something real was repressed.

Decoration is often in the background, on walls and furniture. My work pulls it forward.
