Allison Maletz is a contemporary mixed media artist. She received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and her MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL. Maletz began as a documentary style artist-photographer, traveling throughout the world making photographs about being normal, yet misplaced. Wanting to branch out into different mediums and art communities, in 2007 she moved to London. There she started making sound installations and large-scale watercolor paintings from photographs that further developed the concepts in her previous work. In recent years Maletz has focused on the idea of 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.

She is currently living and working in New York City, and has exhibited various mediums in the Liverpool Biennial, New Contemporaries UK, Zoo Art Italy, The Royal Watercolor Society in London, and the Moscow Biennale for Young Artists at the MMoMA. Her first New York solo show "Together" was at the Christopher Henry Gallery in 2013. Recently she has exhibited at the National Arts Club, Calico, the Denny Gallery, Fresh Window, NURTUREart, and the Florence Griswold Museum. Read Less
