Hints of disease and disfigurement reoccur throughout the mixed media explorations of Allyson Mellberg. Her work is subdued in colour which highlights the rich variety of mark-making that she seems to enjoy. She comfortably employs this range of confident marks as an artist might enjoy a range of colours on their palette. From the simple outlines to the carefully placed contour lines of the eyes and mouth there exists an unusually cohesive and deliberate approach that is as startling as the odd figures depicted.
