Allison Gildersleeve opened up a new vocabulary in her painting practice during her Liquitex residency, with a transition from oils to acrylic. A fresh way of working emerged as she activated the whole studio, working on the walls, tables and floor, using the full range of Liquitex materials. Allison is a Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program Awardee 2017-2018, and used her time in our London studio to plan a mural for the Cynthia Reeves Gallery by pinning up her multi-media marks on plastic and moving them about to create layers of depth. Discover how she used our materials to create studio wall ‘sketchbooks’ that she references when making her paintings on paper and canvas.
