Remembered Paintings by Allison Sheppard

Remembered Paintings by Allison Sheppard

In this series of paintings, Allison Sheppard focused on capturing familiar spaces; overlaying the real spaces of her childhood home with her memories of the space, focusing on what she remembers most.In order to strengthen her personal connections to each painting, Sheppard built each frame and stretched each canvas herself. She then applies watered-down acrylic paint in layers and allows it to drip and behave how it naturally wants. In this process of building, stretching, and painting Sheppard lets go of her need to be pristine and perfect because memories themselves are often imperfect and rough. Allison Sheppard is currently a senior at Penn State majoring in Painting and Drawing.
