Meredith Allen, “Moriches Bay (marvin the martian)” (1999)

On March 17, artist Meredith Allen (1964-2011) passed away after a three year battle with cancer. Gallery owner Ed Winkleman has an obituary of Allen on his blog.

We’ve reproduced an image from her popular Melting Ice Pops series that, Winkleman writes, are “addictively sensuous images [that] became Meredith’s break-out series and are included in many collections around the world.”

Allen is survived by her longtime partner, artist Carol Saft, and her dog Iggy, who she was featured in a number of her works.

Sarah Schmerler has a short tribute on The W+G News site and Stephanie Cash has an obituary at Art in America.
