Corridor Gallery is proud to present CONNECT…, a solo exhibition featuring the works of Allie Wilkinson. Residing in Brooklyn, New York, Allie has exhibited across the United States. Her works focus on people and the experiences we share —specifically, the ways in which we hide ourselves from each other, despite an innate and profound desire to connect. Working with translucencies and layering, Allie pairs these elements with intricate graphite drawings; the layered effect transforms each work into visual hazes of organic portraiture. Through this technique, she is able to convey the messy, strange, transcendent, and luminous experience of being.
CONNECT… is an exploration of both our uniqueness and our same-ness. Every face is different, and yet we have a shared genetic makeup. Every life is distinct, and yet we all experience, fear, love, and desire. These works search out the beauty to be found in this contrast.
