Allison Reimold's "Poison Bloom"

Allison Reimold's "Poison Bloom"

Currently virtually on view at Arch Enemy Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is People's Printshop artist Allison Reimold’s solo exhibition, “Poison Bloom.”

“Poison Bloom,” is a seven-piece series that immortalizes the female portrait, empowering femininity in a way that feels both classical and contemporary. Each individual piece is meticulously rendered and gorgeously framed, but Reimold’s work is not merely decorative. As a whole, the series represents her meditation on the duality inherent to the femininity she depicts. Reimold explains, “‘Vessel’ was the first piece conceived in this series, and in many ways is a piece that defined the whole series. It is about springtime, a season of change, and the passage of innocence. Our heroine carries a vessel, which traditionally represents femininity, spreading petals into the fertile earth, while butterflies, a symbol of transformation and transcendence, obscure [her face that] would normally be the focal point of her beauty.”
