Alice Webb Artist Statement

As an artist the creation of images that the viewer can reflect upon and be rejuvenated by has always been my top priority. I work in oils with a focus primarily on the landscape.

There are an infinite number of ways to color canvas with excitement.  The graceful or wild lines created by a mountain or a river; the contrast in light and shadow; all the simple, complex, natural and man made shapes that make up the landscape delight me. I am particularly interested in the southwest because of its fierce beauty. In my landscapes I first have to find the composition of the painting.  I may move mountains and rivers reimagining the scene when I draw the contours of the physical structures. I look for the pure color in the landscape and have become known for my use of color. At some point I surrender to the process and let my “I” get out of the way. This is another reason why I paint – to reach that meditative state where the painting takes on a life of its own. Hopefully I have created a feast for your eyes and you can enjoy viewing my work as much as I have enjoyed painting these pieces!


Alice Webb Biography

I arrived in Taos, New Mexico in 1973 at age twenty-one, after having grown up near the museum district in Fort Worth, Texas. Drawing, painting and the study of art formed the backbone of my early years. While still in junior high school, I began to show and sell paintings, prints and drawings at craft fairs. Although I now have a Bachelors of Fine Art and a Masters of Art Education from the University of New Mexico, it was by studying the Taos founders and painting in the very spots they frequented that I truly learned to paint. When I went back to school at UNM in 1990 I took a break from the heightened color I had become known for and explored the thousands of variations of black, white and gray. Even with these abstract paintings I often laid down a colorful under painting. I feel I actually learned more in relationship to my own work when I studied color theory while working on my Masters in Art Education than I did when completing my BFA.

Over the past forty years I have exhibited work both nationally and internationally, in museums, universities, galleries and juried shows. My paintings and prints are included in numerous public, corporate and private collections and can be seen locally at Weyrich Gallery in Albuquerque, NM and Jezebel Gallery in Madrid, NM.
