Massimo Audiello Gallery in New York is currently presenting Alison Brady‘s second solo show, An Uncertain Nature, until February 28th. Brady received an M.F.A. in Photography, Video, and Related Media from The School of the Visual Arts in New York City. She works in series of color photographs that investigate subconscious desires and trigger emotional and sexual responses.

Brady creates compelling scenarios in domestic interiors by inserting some mysterious or troubling elements. Her subjects, both strangers and friends, often have their identities obscured by bizarre set pieces, creating images that are at once alluring and repellant. The artist states that she attempts “to create dichotomies between the sensual and the horrific, the beautiful and the destructive.” She has previously been featured on DailyServing for her exhibition at the Foundation Center of Photography in Poland last summer.
