Allois (1962 - )

  
   Born in 1962 in the Ukraine, Allois spent most of her childhood in the small beautiful city of Wittenberg, Germany. Showing signs of artistic talent at a young age, she began her formal training at an Art School in Rostov-na-Donu, Russia and continued studying throghout her teenage years in Legnica, Poland. Upon graduating from Kiev State University, Ukraine, Allois immigrated to the United States.

  People, landscape, and abstract shapes exist on equal footing in Allois's work. She uses pastels to impulsively render her magical fantasy world. Works like Night Beauty show Allois's combination of figurative abstraction ton and uplifting surrealism. Her work repeats themes of blossoming and growth. People and flowers are united with the landscape. She combines the creative liberties of illustration and caricature to speak of more austere subject matter. In Night Beauty the flower takes on an almost human form - a seemingly playful comparison. But there is also a sense of austerity in her neutral colors and toned down hues. The brushy paint is sedative and calming. With strong ties to the world of psychology, she looks to artists such as Van Gogh, Munch, Ernst and Nolde, who also exhibit a link to the subconscious world. Working intuitively and automatically, her work reveals a magical synthesis: a fantasy world of strange creatures, surreal landscapes and representational painting

She resumed painting after being inspired by travels to Austia, Mexico, Cyprus and the American West. In 2001, she founded "Paradesign Studio" in Chicago, where she worked as an artist and psychologist.
