DIK02: Torso by Whitney Allen

A selection of artwork by Whitney Allen, hand-picked from her hidden piles. The drawings span almost the breadth of a decade, revealing little glimpses into the corners of her life. As a distracted waitress Whitney scribbled twisted faces onto notecards between orders. In these pages you'll also find  nebulous webs of line forming fleshy lumps and careful colors that weave mesmerizing tapestries, whispy specters transforming into dissolving abstraction, and little mindless scribbles both dark and flighty. Complete with a self-portrait polaroid printed on the back cover.

Whitney's band Toupee plays often in Chicago. She is also one half of the dark and exotic musical duo, Columba Fasciata.
