Alemian paints primarily in the medium of oil. Her subject matter includes landscapes, still lifes and figures. She has shown her work in various individual and collective exhibitions in the United States.
In the past few years, she has studied the techniques of, among others, Willem deKooning, Hans Hoffman, Richard Diebenkorn, the Bay Area Figurative artists and contemporary artist Cynthia Packard, adopting their methods of strong, gestural brushwork and aggressive color.
My love for painting, the act of painting and my interest in experimentation have lead me to a current style involving the principals of expressionism. My subjects emerge from open abstract areas of paint and charcoal lines.
Color and light has always been a strong interest, and the exploration of new color and paint application continues to evolve in my work.
Between 1964 and 1967, Alemian lived in Hong Kong and Bangkok, Thailand respectively. Her father worked with Gillette just when United States companies were exploring and opening up the Asian markets. Here she was introduced to exotic art and architecture. Her family moved to Germany in 1967 where she thrived in the art classes at Munich International School and studied art privately with Marika Schreiber. She has traveled to France on numerous occasions with her husband, Richard, and looked closely at the work of Ingres, Poussin, Degas and Matisse. It was her first visit to Italy, however, that profoundly influenced her sense of color and structure. The rich golden tones of the Italian masters hit a unique spot in her sensibilities.
