Artist, Allison Zuckermann in her studio, with artworks from "A Taste of Mille-Feuilles" show
Allison Zuckerman's large scale canvases take a selection of female- orientated images from art history and, through the application of oil and acrylic paint, crystal rhinestones, and embedded archival CMYK ink, fuse them together in collage. Her work juxtaposes colourful pop imagery with a historical aesthetic. Through this marriage of epochs Zuckerman seeks to reclaim female figures from a male-dominated art historical canon, and does so with palpable excitement, humour and love.
Allison Zuckerman (b. 1990 Harrisburg, PA) lives and works in New York, NY.
Zuckerman studied at the Yale Norfolk Summer School of Art and went on to receive a BA from the University of Pennsylvania, as well as an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Zuckerman has been the subjects of solo exhibitions at Kravets Wehby Gallery, New York, NY; Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art in Israel; Akron Art Museum in Ohio; and the Rubell Family Collection in Miami, FL. In 2017 she completed a residency at the Rubell Museum in Miami, FL. Additionally, Zuckerman has collaborated on projects with Todd, Charli XCX, Louis Vuitton and Moschino.
