Working in paint, sculpture, and animation, Allison Schulnik (b. 1978) is an American artist who seamlessly transitions between mediums, imbuing her work with a distinct sensibility that melds theatricality with intense emotional vulnerability. Known for her uncanny approach to traversing the internal and immaterial terrains of nostalgia, childhood memories, and dreams, Schulnik choreographs an honest, complex and contemporary portrait of new motherhood and life seen through the purple haze and black silence of the desert. Her films have been included in internationally renowned museums and festivals including MASS MoCA, the Hammer Museum, LACMA, Annecy International Animated Film Festival, and Animafest Zagreb. Schulnik received her BFA in Experimental Animation at CalArts, and lives and works in Sky Valley, CA.
