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!

” Don’t bother about being modern. Unfortunately it is the one thing that, whatever you do, you cannot avoid.”Salvador Dali
