allison schulnik



Allison Schulnik is one of those artists who sees the world through a different set of lenses, and knows how to channel it effectively so we can all get in on the experience. She has a knack for bringing out the grittier and lesser-known side to everyday objects. In her series of paintings, she creates many images of clowns using a gruesome and fantastical vision that is reminiscent of Francis Bacon. Schulnik takes ceramic cat figurines – usually reserved for crazy ladies' mantelpieces – and drips them in glitter and gloom until it looks like they’ve been out raving all night.
