There’s a tension in Ricky Allman‘s work that’s almost tangible, a tightly coiled arrangement of opposites that seems about to erupt from the canvas.
Natural forms – in particular the looming moutains of his home state of Utah – vie with sharply defined shapes that replicate in a kind of sci-fi construction boom. Bursts of colour break from muted palettes; shafts of light pierce leaden skies.
The visual drama is intense, the juxtapositions that fuel it brimming with uncertain interpretation. The scene before us shifts indeterminately, simultaneously upbeat and brooding!
Interview Magazine Germany´s first issue (February 2012) is looking awesome! Model Ilva Hetmann stars in this ‘Electric Kool-Aid Acid’ editorial shot by Markus Pritzi. So cool that they use the very trendy “human mapping” technique to project fabulous colorful patterns onto the model. Fresh work!

They say the proof is in the pudding. Here’s the pudding:
I appreciate your talent, Sue. This one’s for you!
And this concludes my project. I have learned a few things during the process:
Relatively, 100 is a lot. I mean, 100 pennies is not a lot- but for me, 100 portraits is a lot.
I was able to accomplish a goal, on time.
Giving is a great way of getting.

I have just arrived home from what was a very relaxing three days away in the Hunter Valley in NSW, about 2 hours north of Sydney. The Hunter Valley is a wine region, with over 100 vineyards and wineries, many of which are boutiques and only sell wine to the public from the cellar door. This had been a mini-getaway in the making for months, purposely planned during the week to avoid the crowds, and for me it was a chance to do something I haven’t done for a long time – switch off.
