Rich olfactory memories of time spent in the desert inspired this trio of fragrances: the smell of smoke in your hair the morning after a campfire, an altar offering incense, herbs, and sweet honey, the scent of the California High Desert after the first rain of the season. California-based artist Allison Kunath drew from her own recollections as inspiration for these bold, deep, unique aromas to compliment her powerful portraits that evoke the strength and beauty of womankind. 10% of all sales from this collection will be donated to women's rights organizations: Planned Parenthood, Equality Now, and CHANGE.
Inspired by the smell of smoke in your hair the morning after a campfire, and dusty desert roads at night. Cedar, palo santo, and bitter spice.
Inspired by an altar offering incense, herbs and sweet honey. Tobacco, leather, and rich black soil.
Inspired by the scent of the California High Desert after the first rain of the season. Creosote, desert sage, and sun baked rocks.
About the Artist
California-based artist Allison Kunath’s work is fueled by the tension between her need for both solitude and connection. Creating self-reflective work that explores various forms of communication, Kunath uses her relationships as her main inspiration. Examining the way she relates to herself, her community, and her environment, she makes works that are meditative responses to those connections. Her studio works are primarily on paper and canvas, and her murals can be found in the US, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama and Costa Rica.
