REVIEWS

Alice Dubiel directly commented on "wilderness" designation itself as a
mask for our destruction of the earth. Her Views and Reviews: A Wilderness
Tale exposed the exploitation of nature with pithy quotes and kitsch images.


-Susan Platt, Art Papers, May-June 1999


There's a new look at the old in Alice Dubiel's complex and poetic piece
Views and Reviews: A Wilderness Tale,... [which] alludes to the conflict
between civilization and nature.


-Ron Glowen, The Herald [Everett WA], January 8, 1999


Alice Dubiel is clever: in her installation at 911 Media Arts, she wrapped what was really a polemic in engaging dress. Her five window panels, like
so many holiday window displays, drew in curious passers-by.... Dubiel used
the panels to present visually her thesis that our view of the landscape,
and of nature, is inevitably colored by the same desires for control and
order that drive our relationship with the urban realm.


-Christopher Hawthorne, Seattle Weekly, January 26, 1994


Alice Dubiel addresses the issue of nuclear threat and environmental
toxicity with a series of exquisite watercolors that combine the fluid
delicacy of Persian miniatures with the format of medieval illuminations.


-Claire Accomando, Artweek, November 3, 1984


Alice Dubiel, using the scroll format of traditional Eastern painting in
Apocalyptic Visions, connects the "ancient burning terror" of volcanic
eruption to nuclear holocaust.


-Judith Margolis, Artweek, January 9, 1988.


A positive historical note is sounded by Alice Dubiel's painting, Lay Women
Healers in Medieval Europe, which calls to mind the fact that women have
also been able to heal and have often been sisters to one another.


-Louise Moore, Artweek, June 9, 1984
