A statement from San Francisco-born artist Allison Torneros aka Hueman: "As a creature of habit, my art is where I find my spontaneity. I take a reactive approach to the creative process by allowing the medium to do the 'talking': I splatter paint around aimlessly, then later paint the images I see in the random composition, as if viewing a Rorschach inkblot test. My work is heavily driven by emotion, the things I've read, heard, or experience, and what it means to be human. I am constantly on a search to find a happy medium: between the beautiful and grotesque, the abstract and the figurative, and that golden moment between sleep and wake."
