Profile Location
Lincoln , NE

Allison Arkush grew up in Los Angeles, California before moving to New York City in 2010.  She attended New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study, and graduated with high honors in Spring 2016.  At Gallatin Allison concentrated in “The History and Psychology of Madness and Creativity”.  She divided her studies between studio art classes, psychology, and their fusion in art therapy.  Under the umbrella of psychology Allison focused on child and adolescent mental health, psychoanalytic theory and history, modern clinical practices, and complementary and alternative mental health systems. Allison has also enjoyed teaching ceramics at NYU, and managing their ceramic studio facilities.

Since Allison was young, making art has not been so much a choice as a compulsion.  She has worked with a wide range of mediums and crafts. Recently her focus has been on three dimensional works combining casting, ceramics, painting and collage.  Experimenting with the effects and reactions between materials, sensations and memories is central to her practice.
