Bring your lunch and feed your brain at an Art at Lunch lecture with Professor of Fine Arts & Foundation Alice Oh. Join us on Wednesday, March 23 from 11:30 - 12:30 pm in Fox Commons.
Alice Oh works with a unique artistic method that engages in only sparse planning, but instead focuses on allowing her paintings to develop naturally as a “dialogue” between the artist and their artwork. She often works in a series of works at a time in order to see her evolving dialogues to their logical conclusion. Greatly influenced by nature and biology, Oh is interested in the concurrence of microscopic and macroscopic life. Her work is included in the collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Leeway Foundation, Temple University, and Yale University. Oh exhibited University of Pennsylvania, Rosemont College, Franklin and Marshall College, Millersville University, and the Philadelphia Arts Alliance.
Oh’s work has been included in the Painting Center, Southwest Minnesota State University Art Museum, Towson University, the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts, the International Fine Print Center, the Dupont Center for Contemporary Art, the University of Hawaii and the Yoshibishu Art Center, Japan. She has received a Pew Fellowship Grant, a W.O.A. and Seedling Grant from the Leeway Foundation, and a Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship Award in Painting. She was an artist in residence at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art and the Vermont Studio Center. Oh earned her MFA from Yale University and her BFA from Tyler School of Art at Temple University and from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Currently, she is a Professor at Moore College of Art and Design. She lives and works in Philadelphia, PA and Seoul, South Korea.
