We are going to take the advice of the filmmakers: "Turn up the volume, turn off the lights and make full screen. Allow a few minutes for film to load/buffer first before viewing so it won't play choppy. "Eager" is just a brilliant clay-mation and stop-motion creation from LA-based fine artist Allison Schulnik made in conjunction with a museum show at Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford, CT as well as a solo show at ZieherSmith NYC in early 2014.

We are in awe of Allison Schulnik's latest animation. Her use of stop-motion oil painting and incredible clay-mation alongside a haunting soundtrack makes for yet another breathtaking short. 'Although a haunting sense of foreboding, discomfort and unease is palpable, a sense of understanding, compassion and hopefulness for her cast of characters is still evident...'

One of our favorites curators of the moment, Jesper Elg of V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, just opened a curated show at The Hole in NYC called Chicken or Beef?. The show itself is loaded with great talent from both America and Europe, curated as a "Transatlantic survey of figurative painting in Europe and America, named after the ubiquitous question posed on transatlantic flights."

Mark Moore Gallery describes Allison Schulnik's paintings as "distinctively textured," which may be a slight understatement. Schulnik's painted outcasts, mermaids, losers and nudes are more stuff than substance, their insides oozing out and dripping all over like a melting ice cream cone. Yet even through the heavily slathered paint the dark psychology of her lovable characters shine through. Her current show 'Salty Air' is on view until July 7, 2012.
