"My work comes out of me in a very organic way with the intention of creating a visual story. I want people to engage in my art through their own experiences, but I mostly want the work to be enjoyed. My palate is soft and the transitions in my work are both subtle and rigid, often inspired by Oklahoma weather and regional landscapes. I incorporate a variety of media into my paintings and usually add oil pastels and graphite towards the end of the process. Overall composition is determined by the relationship of positive and negative space, which evolves through the intuitive placement of color. I don't consider my work to be complicated, but it is incredibly personal as it is an honest documentation of my perception of the world." -Allison Keim
Working in an abstracted, gestural style, Allison's work is both etherial and organic. She draws inspiration from the environment of her home state of Oklahoma to create a composition revolving around an unforgettable moment or complex emotion. In addition to making original abstract paintings, she also works with clients to create custom work. Her studio is at The Hive, located on Main Street in Jenks, Oklahoma. This new project from the Jenks Chamber of Commerce is making art accessible to the community in a new and exciting way. As an artist in residence, she will have a show in the gallery space there and will also create curriculum for a class which she will teach. Check the events page for more details.
