Allison Malinsky- Summer Residency 2016

Allison Malinsky, born in Canterbury, N.H. in 1980, lives and works in Barcelona, Spain. By means of painting, drawing and sculpture, she continues to develop her investigation of human movement and form at play within their surrounding landscapes. She builds up her two and three-dimensional paintings by using cool tones alongside warm fleshy hues, and by composing varying gestures to express voluminous feminine forms.

She moved to Barcelona after fifteen years of living in New York City, where she had studied at New York University to earn both her undergraduate degree in Studio Art (2002), and later her Masters in Art (2008).

In Spain, Malinsky exhibits with and is represented by Galería Victor Saavedra (Barcelona, 2016). She has also shown internationally at galleries including; AMBIT Galeria d’Art (Barcelona, 2014), DC Arts Center Gallery (Washington, DC, 2016), Five Myles Gallery (NYC, 2010), The Horticultural Society of New York (NYC, 2010), and Waiting Room Gallery (Tokyo, 2009).

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
