Alice Dubiel

 "Re: Seeding Gaia: Flow"
Acrylic on paper and wood (framed)
26" x 52" 1996

Alice Dubiel has exhibited her work internationally and nationally, especially throughout the Pacific states during the past 29 years. Most of the artist¡¯s work is concerned with ecology and the politics of representation; other works explore the politics of reproduction. Solo installations at Auburn Arts Commission Gallery, the White Sturgeon Gallery at the Water Resources Center in Vancouver, WA and a retrospective at Ohlone College in Fremont CA featured paintings, interactive shrines and conceptual work involving land use. In fall 2006, she was artist in residence at North Cascades National Park.
Older projects included The Landscape Tale and Implode the Dome, conceptual works to stimulate community-based land use dialogue. In 1990, the artist collaborated with artists Marita Dingus, Ann Rosenthal and Sarah Teofanov to create Dreaming the Earth Whole at Bumbershoot and the Tacoma Art Museum.
Dubiel¡¯s works on agriculture, feminism and reproduction have appeared in California, New York, San Antonio, Portland, Edinburgh and Daegu, Korea.
A current project, The Hazel Tree Mother, develops a narrative based on Cinderella and its traditional links to trees. The secret identity of the heroine explores the dialectic between the studies of ecology and evolution.
Alice Dubiel works and lives with her family in Seattle where she volunteers as an amateur naturalist. Born in Berkeley, CA, she received an MA in painting from San Jose State University and an AB in English literature from UC Santa Cruz, pursuing graduate literature studies in medieval literature, art and critical theory at Bryn Mawr College and UC Irvine. In 1984, Dubiel received funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities for research on women¡¯s performance. In 2007 she received funds from 4Culture in King County, WA for The Hazel Tree Mother. Her work appears in Women Artists of the American West by Susan Ressler.
