spent part of the afternoon reading new american paintings, and came across allison cortson, an la based artist. she, is great.

her dust paintings are our favorites, and the fact that many of them are crazily large only adds to the appeal. her figures are photo-realistic, surrounded with dust collected from the individuals’ respective habitats and arranged on the canvas to depict an environment. she says that each person’s dust is a slightly different shade, and we think that is the neatest part of all.

her pastel drawings are not too shabby, either.
