artist statement:::

I am a multi-faceted Atlanta artist who makes performances, installations, drawings, and other art objects that are influenced by my life, dreams, and control. Throughout my art career, my performances have incorporated various forms of social control. Lately I’ve been concentrating on affecting the audiences’ experience with my performances. My center has shifted from what I experience (and if my field of vision contains beauty) to what the audience sees happening, and what they feel.

I am the mentally ill, single mom of a 6 year old, and my art reflects that.




Allison Rentz is a metro-Atlanta artist who works in performance, installation, drawing, and multimedia to create social commentary with an autobiographical flavor. She is interested in how people interact with each other and with their environment. Recent works have also included references to the artist’s dreams and her life as a single mother. Allison’s art is typically presented in Atlanta, GA; as well as nationally, internationally and on the Web. Her work has been exhibited at The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, Flux Night, Elevate, MODA, Whitespace, Eyedrum, and other art spaces and public places. She was the inaugural recipient of the Idea Capital Grant, and received the Bjork Award from Eyedrum in 2008.
