Allison Edge was born in Raleigh, NC in 1975. She received her BFA in Painting
from the University of Georgia in 1997 and her MFA in Painting from the University of
North Carolina at Greensboro in 2000. For about 10 years she has worked primarily
with the imagery of 'pretty boys' and kittens - separately, but more recently together.
The works have been described as invoking "a whole-hearted embrace of the adolescent
gaze." They have been exhibited in galleries on the east and west coasts, including
Lincart in San Francisco, Motel in Portland, OR, Lump in Raleigh, NC, and various
Brooklyn venues, including Like the Spice, as well as in Tokyo and Melbourne.
Edge lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Her current series of dreamy, photograph-based paintings depicting memories of summer travels and vacations as an adolescent will be exhibited at Like the Spice in March 2008.
