Alice Oh

Professor
Alice Oh works with a unique artistic method that engages in only sparse planning, and instead focuses on allowing her paintings to develop naturally as a “dialogue” between the artist and the artwork. She often works on a series of works at a time in order to see her evolving dialogues through to their logical conclusion. Greatly influenced by nature and biology, she is interested in the concurrence of microscopic and macroscopic life. Oh’s work is included in the collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Leeway Foundation, Temple University and Yale University, and she has exhibited at the University of Pennsylvania, Rosemont College, Franklin and Marshall College, Millersville University and the Philadelphia Arts Alliance. View full profile
