HOUSE OF CARDS, 84" x 120" mixed media Autust 2011
“Kelly Alison is also in “Fourteen” and continues the process of artistic commentary based on corrosive or ridiculous news items.

There is also an Exhibition catalog, and an Interview with Kelly Alison on KPFT archives Sept. 23, 2011

When found, the bird explained that he was not guilty of disrespect. On the contrary, for the last three months he had hardly tasted any food or water, flying all over the world to discover if any place existed which was not yet subject to Solomon. Finally he found the land of Sheba. The lush land in the middle of the desert boasted gold, silver, and great gems, and one of the most valuable treasures of the royal line was the throne, intricately carved of precious woods and inlaid with ivory and gold. The inhabitants of Sheba did not know the meaning of war, said the hoopoe….read more
