Allison Bianco's work explores how nostalgia fosters recollections of the past that are only partly true. Nostalgic longing begets blurred memory, leaving a confused picture of our history. To convey that blurring, her work typically depicts destructive forces like storms and earthquakes that threaten humble locales, with characters that are unaware of the impending peril.
