Alanna Huck-Scarry is a visual artist who makes three-dimensional, abstract, self-portraiture. Through her work, Huck-Scarry seeks to bridge the gap between abstract and non-objective visual art. Her visual outcomes are determined by form, movement, space, and so on that directly relate to her body. In this way, her work is not about identity but a solely objective stance on the human form. This both personal and impersonal exploration is intended to be a lifelong endeavor; as Huck-Scarry’s body changes with time, so will her work.
Most recently Huck-Scarry has extended her definition of self-portraiture to include an exploration of memory and place.
Alanna Huck-Scarry has shown throughout the Midwest in shows including Body Language at the Krasl Art Center (St. Joseph, Michigan 2019) and What’s Next at the Ice House Gallery (Evanston, Illinois 2019). In 2018 Alanna Huck-Scarry graduated from DePaul University after studying studio art and art history. Later that year she was also a part of the Chicago Artists Coalition’s LAUNCH Residency.
Currently Alanna Huck-Scarry is living and working on her art in Chicago, Illinois. She is also a children’s art instructor at the Paintbrush in Chicago.
