Alison Hixon at Susan Eddings Pérez Gallery

i fill my own cup (2021), watercolor, gouache, and ink

Self-taught artist Alison Hixon works in a range of mediums, including illustration, painting, and stained glass. Her work is an autobiographical commentary on her journey through life, focusing on themes of self-identity, sexuality, coming of age, and the emotional turmoils of womanhood. In labyrinths, her second exhibition this year, she continues to translate intimate self-realizations into visual forms, which express emotional intelligence and vulnerability.

“These selected works represent the ongoing stages of finding one’s way through the irregular networks, passages, and paths of life,” she says in a statement. “When we focus on the journey it brings attention to aid the consciousness. What matters most is the drama of all the possibilities and impossibilities.”

The exhibition continues through Jan. 7. Masks are required.
