443 PAS is pleased to present Retorno, a solo show of new paintings by Allison Malinsky that continue the artist’s ongoing exploration of nature and place. Using a range of painting techniques and media, she examines the structure of landscapes as filtered through memory and experience.
The imagery and color palette featured in this body of work are directly influenced by the two years Malinsky lived and worked in Southern Spain. Capturing the unique light of the region, she presents crisp Andalusian panoramas and, more abstractly, the churning azure waves and turbulent skies. The Smartly observed compositions create mysterious spaces outside of time, while the overwhelming use of blue imbues the work with longing.
Aptly titling her show Retorno (The Spanish translation for “a return”), Malinsky presents visions of places that seem to exist only in memory-places that we may revisit, but which we can never return.
Alison Malinsky (b. 1980, lives and works in New York) has her Masters in painting from New York University. Her work has been shown in several galleries in Spain, as well as Kathleen Cullen Gallery, NY, Factory Fresh Gallery, NY, and Waiting Room Gallery, Tokyo.
