RISD 2016 -- Alderman Silk Screens were exhibited at the RISD Synergetics Symposium in the Nature Lab to represent the Loeb Design Science Collection. Originally hand printed for Department of Visual and Environmental Studies, Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, Harvard. Exhibited at VES 1983-2002, International Symmetry Congress, 1987.
Structure is design science. Structure Art is abstract art of the 60s and 70s era of pop art, op art and Warhol. Alderman structure prints captured the moment to define that time in a style of expression and ideal technique.
Alderman experimented in structural paintings, 5' x 5' exhibited at Carpenter Center, one appeared on the cover of Harvard Magazine.
A decade later she printed patterns in 20 silkscreens, now in archival giclee prints.
