Artist Statement

Allison Maletz is a contemporary watercolor and sound installation artist. She focuses on the domestic, platonic- yet secretly dysfunctional western family. Her artwork is bright, humorous, and nostalgic, yet she pushes it to a breaking point, when the works pleasantries overtake it. As a result, her artwork starts to evoke discomfort, allowing for the possibility that something grotesque is trying to surface.

Bio: RISD BFA, Slade MFA. She has exhibited in the Liverpool Biennial, New Contemporaries UK, Zoo Art Italy, The Royal Watercolor Society, London, and the Moscow Biennale for Young Artists, Moscow Museum of Modern Art.
