I've was stoked to see Allison Schulnik's new video, Mound floating around the web on a few different blogs and sites recently. Schulnik's work is covered in layers and layers of morbid strokes and works really well in clay. It's exciting to see a new video from her. She translates her gruesome clowns and beings perfectly. Her first video for Grizzly Bear was incredible.
I love how her weird little fellas are still pervy and gross; things are opening, closing and flopping around — but yet the whole thing is still beautiful and transfixing to watch, exactly like her paintings. If you aren't familiar with Schulnik's work, make sure you get to her website — she's got tons of detail shots of her work and it will give you a great idea about how layered and excellent her work really is.
