The expressive ink paintings of Allison Svoboda are both ethereal and ominous at the same time. Finding this edge of beauty in nature, she lets the hundreds of brush strokes speak for themselves. After several years of working in architecture and as an ethnographic art dealer, Allison has turned to painting to express her love of the geometry in nature. Her work can be found in corporate and private collections throughout the United States, Europe and the Middle East including the Conrad Hilton in Dubai. She has had monumental installations at the Grand Rapids Art Museum and the lobby of Prudential Plaza in Chicago. Upcoming solo shows include Womanmade in Chicago and the Cincinnati Art Center in 2013. Her work is currently on display at City Center, Des Moines, Chicago Art Source and the Lincoln Park Conservatory. Allison teaches at Lillstreet Art Center and gives workshops in Asian Ink Painting.
