Artist of The Month // Allison Pharmakis
At The Work Magazine we want to constantly expose new artists and this month, our pick is Allison Pharmakis.
Expect many images on this blog from her for the month of December.
For as far back as I can remember, I have surrounded myself with photographs. Growing up, my walls were fully covered with pages from magazines. I would design scenes for pictures and study Carl Jung’s archetypes and envision them in the faces of modern day people. Running alongside of my love for the printed image, is the love of psychology and spirituality. What I have found is that there is a shared experience of all humans which is that of emotion. Everyone carries with them a specifically unique package of gifts and loves as well as loss and tragedy. People from opposite sides of the world can speak a different language yet feel something as poignantly similar. Underneath the uniqueness, we are the same. My work is a constant process of discovering these many facets of our oneness.
I live, love and thrive in Los Angeles, CA
