Allison Katz


    Allison Katz (b. 1980, Montreal) currently lives and works in London. She received her BFA from the Concordia University in 2002 and her MFA from the Columbia University in 2008.

    Allison Katz’s work engages with the complex and at times contradictory nature of contemporary artistic production, embracing the ambiguity of communication with a playful and inquiring touch that expands the conventional notion of an artist’s “signature style.” Katz’s work operates in a poetic space between mirror and mask, between revealing and concealing what is presented, calling attention to the multiple layers of consciousness that reside in a painting’s surface and subject.
