Biography

Allison Shockley is an Atlanta based multi-media artist who has been making and exhibiting drawing, painting, sculpture, and photography in various galleries in Atlanta and nationally since 1998. She received her B.F.A at the Atlanta College of Art and her M.F.A. at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Shockley’s recent drawings and sculptures feature free-flowing organic forms that seem to be caught in a moment of flux. Although the forms may contain both plant and animal signifiers, they are not intended to represent any particular life form – instead, they are intended to serve as a metaphor for what it is to be alive - to be in a constant state of growth and change. The sculptural work in particular uses the forms to explore the state of being contained and the action of breaking free form that containment.
