VICE Magazine recently released its “Best Short Films” of 2014, and gallery artist Allison Schulnik is included in its ranks! Focusing on her most recent video, “Eager” (2014), the publication declares:
Flowers and blades of grass dance a dark and twisted ballet in Eager, a short animated film where mutated horses and wispy ghost women join the plants. Watching these creatures transform, blossom, grow, die, and regenerate in clay is like sliding comfortably through an enlightening acid trip. Its morphing colors and choreographed clay shapes and figures are inexplicably beautiful and set to an excellent score by Aaron M. Olson. Artist and animator Allison Schulnik, perhaps best known for her Grizzly Bear music video, has created her most stunning and mature work yet.
We congratulate Allison on this distinction. For more information about the artist or available works, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
