Structure Art is abstract art of the era of Warhol Campbell Soups. Alderman structure prints captured the moment to define that time in a style of expression and ideal technique. Structure is design science.
Alderman experimented in structural paintings, 5' x 5' exhibited at Carpenter Center, one appeared on teh cover of Harvard Magazine.
A decade later she printed patterns in 20 silkscreens, now in archival giclee prints.
