fake palindromes

i enjoy the unusual, unrealistic, imaginative forms of life, and for allyson mellberg, she creates these interpretive, speculative, transparent pieces where she uses ingredients from her garden. her pieces enable nature to not only be the source, but also the force. she works with egg tempera and home-made walnut ink. many of her pieces also reflect the distruction of beauty and appearance that society has long created. in some of her work, her figures have facial growths or blisters, which were inspired by the harmful parabens found in beauty products.
allyson mellberg's art work is beautiful to me because she uses the force of nature to coexist with humans and our environment.
