About Alannah Sears

Alannah Sears is an artist from New York, NY, who explores her ambiguous and evolving identity with images surrounding and refracting off family, herself, culture, and the dichotomy of her evolving environments. She works intuitively with various mixtures of images, colors, patterns, and textures to create an environment or assortments of characters, where they can be warped into other planes of existence that reflects upon the inner workings of her psyche. Recently graduating from SUNY Purchase, she has found a new love for experimenting and pushing her problem-solving skills to discover new imagery and expand her perception of beauty, order, perspective, and community.
