Alison Blickle Continues Her Tale of the Occult in “History of Magic III… Uncrossing”

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Fans of Alison Blickle (featured in HF Vol. 28) will recall that the artist has been working on a series of narrative paintings for the past three years, relating her self-created myth in installments that come in the form of annual solo shows. Currently, the last chapter in her tale of a mystical woman and her magic vessel is on view at Kravets Wehby Gallery in New York. “History of Magic III… Uncrossing” features opulent scenes of fictitious incantations and rituals. Blickle ornaments her characters with mosaic-like patterns that echo the ceramics hanging on the walls and displayed before her paintings in altar-like formations. Since this is the last chapter of “History of Magic,” we are curious to see where Blickle goes next.
