Allison Wonderland, Feb 19thPosted: February 10, 2011
Allison Wonderland presents the works of 5 Los Angeles based artists, all primarily painters, who all share the first name of Allison (or Alison). This exhibition meets coincidence at the intersection of chance and fate, and attempts to achieve a critical mass. Though the work presents a dazzling vocabulary of diverse imagery and form, it is the inescapable kindred connections that bring these five artists together. The remarkable vision and choices of these artists are presented under the context of their own shared name, chosen for them, and lived under all their lives, now brought together through an inevitability of the absurd, and an absurdity of the inevitable.
