Allison Cortson uses dust to create paintings

March 30, 2012
Artist Allison Cortson, from Los Angeles, California, said “Dust is the perfect material because it is actually created by the people in the paintings. She adds “I was sitting on the couch watching dust particles float around in the light coming through the window and the idea came to me”.

“I’m interested in the fact that the older we get, the more dust we create – it is made up of 70 per cent dead skin. I enjoy painting people and thought dust would be the perfect material to represent them in their own environment.”

“I am pretty quick when it comes to painting, depending on the size it takes me a week or two to finish,” she said. “There aren’t any special tools I use, except a fine mesh strainer I bought from a cooking store to sift out the dust”.
