"Alo Munizza: ...continuing the process..."
2001-08-16 until 2001-09-16
San Diego Art Institute
San Diego, CA, USA United States of America

Alo Mnizza presents work that she has created since returning to the darkroom with her new negatives, and following a trip to Great Britain and Ireland. Artist states that ...the creative process is not a shared experience. Whether one is a writer, dancer, actor, musician, sculptor, painter, or photographer, etc., he or she will experience this process through their own means and by way of their own experiences. We think far more than we speak or act, and what we think about has to do with our experiences and how we process these experiences.

Munizza continues... In my case, photography is my means of expression. What 1 see through the view-finder of a camera is a small part of the process. Personally, my creativity evolves in my darkroom. After I find an image that I want to work with I put the negative in the enlarger and more often than not an intuitive process takes over. It truly is beyond conscious reasoning and impossible to explain. This 'playing' may include changing the colors, cropping, sandwiching two negatives together, inserting various materials between the enlarger head and the paper, printing only a very small part of the original image, and/or painting with photographic inks on the image itself. I may also just enlarge the image as I saw it through the camera lens. Whatever works to make the piece 'my piece' and hopefully, will result in exciting those who view it, I will try.

Alo Munizza earned a BA degree in Political Science from Stanford University in 1983. She studied composition and watercolor with Floyd Hopper in Indianapolis, '62-'66; life drawing, printing, silk screen, acrylics and watercolor with Don May in Anaheim, '66-'70; art and color photography in Italy from '83-'86; and from '87 to '89 - photography and photographic history under Ken Randall, David Wing & Suda House plus attending MOPA workshops with Wanda Hammerbaeck, Linda Connor and Jack Fulton.

Alo has exhibited in San Diego since 1994 and she is represented in a number of private collections in Seattle, Albuquerque, New York City and throughout Southern California. In 1994 she received recognition in Nikon's International Photo Contest. 2001 marks her fourth solo show at SDAI
