Allison Pearce – Modern Art with a Feminine Side


Are you looking to transform a bedroom into a feminine and fun place to be? Then you may want to contemplate investing in the work of artist  Allison Pearce. Born in Iceland and trained at the Art Institute of Reykjavik, Pearce has two sides to her work.  We’d like to give you a glimpse at each side and ideas on how to incorporate them into a home’s design scheme.

One side of artist Allison Pearce’s portfolio focuses on outdoor landscapes, many of which include fall foliage. Examples of her work that fall into that category include Red Glory, Delicate Branches, and Indian Summer. They would look beautiful hanging up in a dining room, study, living room or multipurpose room.

The other side of artist Allison Pearce’s body of work reveals her love of feminine delights. It is those pieces of framed art that would be ideal for a bedroom or powder room setting. Take her paintings Most Wanted, Love My Shoes, Out on the Town, Party and Isn’t She Lovely as examples.

As you may have guessed, they spotlight women’s apparel. The Most Wanted and Love My Shoes focus on high heels. The other three paintings feature dresses and shoes placed in similar settings. It should also be noted that the colors incorporated into Pearce’s paintings are quite cheery. They include blues, oranges, greens and reds. As such, they would look good placed near a walk-in closet or dressing area.

Fall landscapes, shoes and party dresses are not the only subjects that you’ll find in artist Allison Pearce’s collection. She is also fond of painting women going about their daily lives and bathtub scenes. For instance, she has two paintings that focus on silhouettes of women walking their dogs. They are titled Best Friend I and Best Friend II. There are also two series that feature claw foot tubs. All three series would look good placed in their own groupings.
