About Alyson Kinkade

Painting professionally since 1997. Alyson Kinkade's artwork is widely collected & exhibited throughout the U.S. She earned her BFA in 1999 for
painting from the Kansas City Art Institute. In 2002 [age 25] Southwest Art Magazine listed Alyson as one of the 'top 21 artists under 31'. & in Sept 2005 [age 28] SWart published her first feature editorial:'Wide Open Spaces' and American Art Collector Magazine published her second feature editorial 'Unknown Terrain' in September of 2010.

'For years the vast open plains have intrigued me in their simple beauty. I recall hours of watching
the landscape span past me in bands of color from the backseat of our Buick station wagon during
family cross-country trips. I am still mesmerized by this understated beauty. The landscape around
me has shaped my aesthetic.

The horizon has captivated me, first as a visual expanse, secondly as a symbol of the human
condition. Each goal we strive for becomes a line in our near or distant future. For me, these
horizons are about our transitions, representing our goals and aspirations, the possibilities of what
lies ahead, and our intention for the future. As we reach a goal, others may appear. – [I suppose
depending upon the ambitiousness of a person, but it is my observation that human nature is to
stretch our reach.]

The act of cultivation in agriculture intrigues me, I appreciate the attempt made to tame the
enormous and ever-changing entity of land. I'm sure at times a seemingly futile task. But the
repetition and difference involved is very exciting and entrancing to me, this meditative rhythmic
difference and repetition also emerges in the visual language. A harmonious, subtle tension
created by an integration of structure and the unplanned. Horizon is the channeled form; Color
creates a dialogue.

I now find myself documenting my cross-country travels by digital camera, I rarely utilize these
snapshots in my paintings – usually just to spark my memory of a place or a particular moment.
The paintings are therefore not a literal translation of the place, rather a filtering of my experience
of the day, shaped and fueled by my internal dialogue.

While the landscapes become outlets/or reflections of my personal relation with the world, the
viewer often does not see this translation, at least not initially. The fact that they may read into it
their own story makes me want to share such imagery more.'
