"Fracture", a series of abstract paintings by Alyson Schultz, will be shown in the gallery space at the office of Thalia Tringo & Associates Real Estate, 128 Willow Ave., Somerville, from October 7 - December 31, 2012.  The artist reception will be held from 5:30-7:30 PM on Tuesday, October 23rd.  Hors d'oeuvres, wine, beer, and other beverages will be served.

In "Fracture", Alyson furthers her exploration of the urban environ through a series of modular panels. Reminiscent of windows, openings and barriers, the sixteen panels share a common palette and were originally conceived as a singular work that could be adapted to multiple configurations.  An attention to the physical immediacy of paint combined with strong, gestural expressiveness are hallmarks of Schultz's work. "Fracture" demonstrate an evolution toward a personal, evocative terrain.

Alyson Schultz studied painting and printmaking at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, graduating with her Masters in the early 1980s. Since then, she has been an active presence in the Boston art community, an original member of the Brickbottom Artist building and currently maintains a studio on Vernon Street.

I have been admiring Alyson Schultz's triptych entitled 'Tally" which hangs in the Spaulding Rehab foyer in Wellesley, MA. It is a haunting abstraction in rich impasto jewel tones reminiscent of a city. There are tally marks up the canvas that remind me of stitches or bulldozer treads. Intense red scumbled tally markers streak across the dark blacken picture pane. in horizontal staccato bands...I wonder if her choice if title, the ominous colors are orange moon...could she be reflecting on the Holocaust? This work has an apocalyptic tone I admire her bravado and poigment underlying ambiguity.
