Alissa Van Atta would sum up her work as “skirting around ambiguity.”  Often classified as Abstract Expressionism, she hints towards shapes created by multiple layers, texture and different treatments of the paint.  The titles are intentionally ambiguous, but encompass aspects of her thoughts and observations during the creative process.

Alissa works vary in size from medium to large, and most often in acrylic.  She has introduced materials such as coffee grinds and dirt to enhance the tactility of the piece and layers with different thickness of paint to create work that aims to have the viewer take a moment and just take in the work.
