Allison Schulnik’s extraordinary claymation Mound

I recently saw Allison Schulnik’s show at Zieher Smith Gallery in Chelsea. It was like walking into a celebration of paint in all its thick, impasto glory, as it came together to create a land of misfits and dazzling rejects. The show stopper was the stop motion, claymation, called MOUND that was both a macabre ceremony and beautifully choreographed ballet of creatures set to the music of It’s Raining Today by Scott Walker. In the film the material of clay and paint comes well off the canvass and fuses Frankenstein life into each gently crafted character.
