14 Paintings, 1 Video, and site specific installation by Jonathan Allen

Developed in residencies in Italy, Ireland, upstate New York, and on Governors Island, these works on paper, canvas, and video use space and location as structuring devices. The resulting compositions range from classically ordered landscapes to esoteric, fluid passages of text and image; from rectilinear grids to chaos; from hard-edged collaged graphics to painterly washes of light. These collaged, painted, and stop-motion worlds operate in the friction between vastness and intimacy, meta and micro, everywhere and here. 

15 works are on view in a private home in the East Village by appointment only. Examples below.
