The KAWS Companion is having a tough day. He is wearing his emotions on his sleeve…pretty distressed, really bummed, almost put off. What has he seen or heard that brought him to such postures? Carved of wood eighteen feet tall they call attention to their plea. ALONG THE WAY features a pair consoling each other, heads hang low, arms cross over their backs in a side hug. It’s good to be there for each other, know who to count on, who feels your pain.  And on the other side of the stage, AT THIS TIME can’t believe his eyes. It’s all too much, body language expresses disappointment in an arched spine and an exaggerated “I can’t look” pose. This exhibition at the Mary Boone Gallery in New York City is showing through December 21st.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
