Jasmine Alleger

For years, Alleger's work has focused on representing acute details of her everyday life. Work combines collaged found materials with painted imagery, collected or photographed within the course of her daily routines. In a sense, Alleger was creating personal journals of particularly mundane aspects of her life. With an interest in elevating the banal and celebrating routine, several bodies of work formed. In the recent months, while small businesses have been closed due to COVID-19 Alleger has embraced her love of Americana. Documenting signs from decades-old businesses, Alleger is wondering what will become of the nostalgic icons and how social distancing will change our relationships to restaurants, bars, hotels and brick and mortar retail.
