Busy Fleas is...
Based out of Lambertville New Jersey, Allison Salenetri is a self-learned mixed media artist specializing in her own unique style of paper collage. Every collage is a one of a kind sumptuous feast for the eyes. Each meticulously hand-cut piece of a final collage, from the tiniest scrap to large background bits, is sourced from mostly vintage books, magazines, and ephemera, almost always found secondhand at flea markets or garage sales. Upon completion, the art is professionally mounted in its own unique antique frame, resulting in a whimsical and harmoniously bizarre composition.
Throughout Allison’s life, one thing remains constant: expressing her passion in a bold way. Whether it's having played internationally-ranked roller derby or as a makeup artist on the runways of New York Fashion Week. In recent years, Allison has delved into herself, as well as into her art as a way to boldly reflect on her life and the world at large, past and present.
While most of her pieces represent feelings of chaos, resilience, failure, hope, disillusionment and/or rebirth, others are simply unintended, yet inimitable reflections of Allison herself: full of emotion while also delighting in goofy and incongruous juxtaposition.
