Allison Svoboda

The natural spread and flow of ink becomes a point of departure for the organic sculptural drawings of Allison Svoboda. Svoboda intuitively works with materials like mulberry paper and ink. Accidents often provide paths for the generation of the work. “Every gesture and every flaw is readily visible.” Her process of layering and assembling reflect the complex fractals and radiating spirals found in natural phenomena. Spontaneity and structure are balanced through physical acts of dissolution and constitution.  Stephany E. Rimland, Associate Professor of Art History, Harper College, IL.
