Alison Rash is a Los Angeles based artist who grew up in rural Nebraska and recently relocated to Lincoln NE. Rash earned an MFA from Claremont Graduate University with a concentration in Painting, an MA in Education from Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology and a BA in Art from Pepperdine University. Her current body of work explores the idea of absence and the relationship between compulsive and impulsive mark-making. Her work occupies the intersection among order, coincidence and manipulation. The paintings, while appearing physical, are very light in paint application. Rash has exhibited in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, San Diego, Dallas and Washington D.C. as well as internationally in Paris, France; Venice, Italy and Tokyo, Japan.
