Allison Shockley’s emotive ink wash paintings seek to evoke the experience of the intangible, sensual worlds that we each have within us by capturing the essence of feeling through intuitive and expressive painting techniques. “Phantoms and Apparitions” explores the idea of visually representing these internal experiences, making the invisible visible. Shockley is influenced by Japanese and Chinese brush painting, Expressionism, and the Wabi-sabi aesthetic.
