Allyson Mellberg's work, which we were recently turned onto by Hi-Fructose, manages to be both grotesque and sentimental; discomfiting and relentlessly twee. All of her work draws on the strangeness of nature -- sea urchins, coral, fungi -- but in Endogenous, Mellberg's newest solo show, which recently opened at Galerie LJ in Paris, the artist has also been inspired by her recent experience with motherhood. Here are some of our favorites from Mellberg's new collection. Head here to see more of her work.
