Video interview and studio visit with painter/animator/sculptor Allison Schulnik.

Schulnik discusses her work and the interplay between different disciplines: "I keep a lot of objects and the figurines and the taxidermy in the studio just because it inspires me in the work. I see them and they're awesome and I love them, so I get them and then I paint them. Painting is… an immediate… satisfaction, or dissatisfaction, but animation takes a long time… and they always inform the other: the painting informs the animation and the animation informs the sculpture and sculpture informs the painting."

The exhibition Allison Schulnik: Salty Air was recently on view at Mark Moore Gallery, Culver City, CA.
