GoSee loves ... the disturbingly beautiful world of Alison Brady. New hardback book to creep out the coffee table out now.

Alison Brady is a rather unusual artist. She moved away from Cleveland to New York, which is pretty normal. The city enabled her to live out her visions as wildly as she liked; also nothing new there.

However, her colourful work consciously borders between reality and our or her imagination. She experiments with emotions, desires, opposites, sexual innuendos – and with us. The beautiful and the disturbing are very close indeed in her world.

Following her exhibition at House Projects Gallery in New York this autumn, her hardback book is out now, available as a black or white edition. 96 pages of Alison Brady! An absolute must-have for the eye hungry.

The publisher comments: ‘Amusement and disgust intermingle in her work with the cumulative effect something like a handcrafted Theater of Cruelty, put on in a suburban backyard, by a girl who most of the kids aren’t allowed to play with.’

Her exhibition ‘An Uncertain Nature’ at the Massimo Audiello Gallery, New York in 2009 was already met with great acclaim. Roberta Smith wrote in The New York Times: ‘Ms. Brady's work deals rather explicitly and hilariously with the female predicament.’

Her work is held in public and private collections, including that of Sir Elton John. The Saatchi Gallery has named her ‘one of the top emerging artists in the world’.
