pasarewAllison Pasarew

silver_smallAllison Pasarew, a talented sculptor, creates her art using unnoticed parts of jewelry, blown apart, and rearranged.  Her artwork forms organically – as the gears, springs, and metal plates dictate the movement and mood of the sculpture.  These precision parts, usually taken for granted or not even thought about until they stop working, are reincarnated and celebrated to create the delicacy of the new life she preserves behind glass.

swirls_smallAllison graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2002 with a concentration in sculpture. For five years she lived and worked in the Detroit, Michigan area, developing abstract sculptures that incorporate obsolete mechanical parts. These sculptures have been called “time lines”, “pop-surrealism” and an “ode to the obsolete.” Since her return to Baltimore, she has continued working on the sculptures, as well as mixed media drawings and digital photography that range from representational to abstract and focus on the beauty of the mechanical objects. Each media is a body of work in their own right, yet all are a part of her ongoing journey to explore the different moods of the subject matter.

dangles_smallAllison has shown nationally in numerous cities and galleries including:
•    Los Angeles, California’s Gallery Noir
•    New Orleans, Louisiana’s Insley Art Gallery
•    Omaha, Nebraska’s Jewish Community Center
•    Michigan,  Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center and Neal Davis Gallery
•    Alexandria Virginia, The Bodzin Art Gallery
•    Towson, Maryland, Towson Artist Collective.

Deborah Maklowski allowed me to video her colored pencil demo; she began drawing at 12:30 & stopped at 4:30. Besides checking out a students progress (18 seconds) and a lunch break she worked steadily. Imagine if the world paid artists by the hour… Please watch the videos carefully, Deborah lost her kneaded eraser, & we can’t find it, if you see it roll off the table let us know. ☺️ #innerworkingsouterjourneys #horsespiritartist See MoreSee Less

Allison Pasarew wraps, weaves & "sews" her sculptures using impossibly thin wire repurposed from today’s broken & replaced technology. Here Allison stands with her, very impressed, Dad.
