About the Artist

Allison reimus

Allison Reimus (b. 1982) explores the relationship between decoration and function and similarly, how painting operates as both an object and an idea. Reimus was the 2009 recipient of the CrispEllert Prize, awarded by Michelle Grabner. In 2010, Reimus was featured in New American Paintings, No. 88, South Issue as an Editor’s Selection and was one of two “Noteworthy Artists” in No. 113, Midwest Issue in 2014. She has exhibited extensively in the US and abroad. Most recent exhibitions include Rocket Run at Nebraska Wesleyan University (Lincoln, NE), The GRAFT Project at Comfort Station (Chicago, IL), Housebound at Heiner Contemporary (Washington, DC) and Home Again Home Again at Redux Contemporary Art Center in Charleston, SC.
