June 7, 2019, 6:00 PM - July 20, 2019, 5:00 PM @ Speakeasy Art Gallery
Speakeasy Art Gallery is pleased to present Allison Kroll’s new solo show “WOMEN IN VISIBILITY” that will be on view at the Speakeasy Art Gallery from June 7th to July 20th. This body of figurative abstraction explores women’s struggles with being seen and unseen in the art world and beyond.
Allison Kroll is a figurative painter based in West Orange, NJ. Kroll’s paintings explore realism laced with abstraction. She uses abstract patterns, objects, and concepts to hide her female portraits as parts of these women become visible and then invisible. This dance plays out in front of the viewer mimicking the real and imaginary coverings women wear for real life. Her most common subject is the female portrait which she imbues with thought provoking formal and metaphorical moments. Her work is in private collections and has been most notably exhibited at the Steamboat Art Museum, the Haggin Museum, the Tucson Desert Art Museum, the Salmagundi Club, and the Dacia Gallery.
