Thanks to all my Kickstarter supporters, I was able to put on a great show that opened on Dec. 3rd, 2011. We all had such a great time, here are pics from my installation at Hold Up Art Gallery.

“Usually Art HERstory schools you ladies on the amazing female artists of the past that you may not have known about. You’re welcome. This week we’re featuring an LA-based artist who is making much noise in the industry. Allison Torneros is something like an art prodigy.

“But the heart and soul of the show is still her incredible paintings, which combine saturated colors, lavish abstraction, and thickly painted figures and imagery to create a powerful but elusive sensation in the viewer which she describes as, “the feeling you get when you’re just waking up from a dream. When images emerge from a kind of fog, and you’re just starting to piece things together — but it’s really the feeling that’s what you remember.”
Found my ad in BlueCanvas at Barnes&Noble. December 3rd be there!

Does anyone want to take over my studio?
I’m officially leaving my wonderful studio at the Brewery Arts Complex that I’ve spent the last year and a half making art babies in. This is because I’m moving into a gorgeous N. Hollywood apartment (still can’t believe it, I’m so excited), which means I’ll no longer afford to keep this place.
As for my work space, I’ll be sharing with the talented dudes from ThinkTank in the Fashion District. I’m excited to be able to work around other creative folks —I was starting to get cabin fever from being by myself so often.
So if anyone is seriously interested, here are the details:
Located at the Brewery Arts Complex, right outside of downtown. 5 minutes away from Little Tokyo and Chinatown. This big studio is in a loft apartment that sits over the 618E Gallery. The downstairs space is shared with Translight Photography Center. This situation would be perfect for anyone that does photography (TPC has dark rooms for rent) or graphic design (they also have large format printers). The place is only steps away from Barbara’s, the Brewery’s restaurant/bar. The front of the space would work well as a lounge area, this is where I currently keep my tv, couch and coffee table.
Available November 15th (possibly earlier). $790 a month, includes utilities/internet. Shared bathroom and kitchen area. The space is WORK ONLY, not available for a live/work situation. For more info or if interested, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
