THE MISSION is pleased to exhibit paintings by Allison Reimus IN THE OFFICE. Reimus explores the relationship between decoration and function and similarly, how painting operated as both object and an idea. Creating compositions that depict household situations in shallow pictorial space allows Reimus to explore her interests in formalism, geometry and abstraction.

Reimus’ work has recently been included in How Much Land curated by Jessica Cochran at Thomas McCormick Gallery (Chicago, IL), Hard Candy at DEMO Projects (Springfield, IL),Interiors at Dorchester Art Project (Boston, MA), fresch stART at Arena 1 Gallery (Los Angeles, CA), among others.
