Alie Ward, Los Angeles Member Since June 2008 Artist Statement Curiology is a little funky company founded by visual artist Alie Ward. Originally from San Francisco, Ms. Ward relunctantly relocated to Los Angeles several years ago, and has become known for both her apparel line and her paintings.
Working almost exclusively on wood, Ward's paintings show a passion for the exploration of words as labels, and the elasticity of such when applied to simple illustrative images, as seen in her ongoing "Dichotomy" series.
She has sold work and completed commissions for many clients in San Francisco and Hollywood, including several high profile celebrities. She has also recently established her apparel line, which features her original, customizable tattoo designs.
Within the local Los Angeles art community, Ward is becoming known for the parched dry wit of her work's words and accompanying visuals, and on a lesser note, for her inclination to wear jumpsuits to public events.
