Artist: Alison Veit (1989 – )
slavishly, she surrendered
to what felt like imminent doom,
she waited once
for it to change
for it to pass
but it seems that that which is imminent
will always occur, and slavish me
how I envy her"

Artist's Collection; Private Collection; 2022 gift to the Fairfield University Art Museum.
Unique works in which images are formed primarily by the direct application of pigments suspended in oil, water, egg yolk, molten wax, or other liquid, arranged in masses of color, onto a generally two-dimensional surface.
Genre of visual arts in which figurative subjects or other forms are simplified or changed in their representation so that they do not portray a recognizable person, object, thing, etc.; may reference an idea, quality, or state rather than a concrete object. For the process of formulating general concepts by abstracting common properties of instances, prefer "abstraction." For 20th-century art styles that were a reaction against the traditional European conception of art as the imitation of nature, use "Abstract (fine arts style)."
