Description This was the first major solo exhibition in the UK by British artist Phillip Allen. Allen is known for his textured paintings, in which the central motif is framed at the top and bottom by multiple layers of paint that are amassed and coated over each other. Allen’s work demonstrates not only an interest in image-making, but also in the substance and nature of paint itself. The artist’s continuous practice of making numerous felt-tip sketches and drawings on A4 paper chart the inception of his abstract forms and arrangements. These drawings become the basis for his paintings where the rules of modernism are both playfully acknowledged and irreverently dismissed.
