The recurring figures in the work of Allison Schulnik commonly include a cast of “hobo clowns, misshapen animals or alien beasts,” as she describes. The multi-disciplinary artist, who has a background in animation, music, and dance, explains: “My fixation on these characters is not intended to exploit deficiencies, but to find valor in adversity.” These individuals have various manifestations, including animated films and painted works, and once as 100 hand-sculpted and sewn puppets. Her subjects occupy dark and morose settings of fecund landscapes or ambiguously ominous backgrounds. Her renderings are sometimes explicit and graphic, though more often critics describe her work as comic and sad all at once.
