ALMA ALLEN

Francesca Vannucci

A NATIVE OF CALIFORNIA, ALMA ALLEN WORKS FROM HIS HOME NEAR JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK.  HIS CREATIONS REFLECT THE RUSTIC CANYONS AND EXPANSIVE NATURE OF THE DESERT. USING MATERIAL THAT HE SOURCES LOCALLY, THE BROAD SPECTRUM OF SHAPES AND FORMS FOUND IN HIS WORK DIRECTLY RESPONDS TO THE FOUND OBJECTS. OUR NEWEST SCULPTURES BY ALLEN HAVE A MODERNIST APPEAL… THE GENTLY ROUNDED EDGES ARE CHARACTERISTIC OF HIS SENSUAL STYLE.

WHEN WE FIRST DISCOVERED ALMA ALLEN, WE WERE SO INTRIGUED THAT WE MADE A PILGRIMAGE TO HIS STUDIO. THE INFLUENCE OF NATURE IN ALLEN’S WORK IS UNDENIABLE.

CARVED FROM FOUND WOOD AND SIMPLY ADORNED WITH A PAIR OF ROUNDED FORMS IN RELIEF, ALMA ALLEN’S SCULPTURE INCORPORATES THE ORGANIC PATTERNS OF HIS MATERIAL, SUMMONING THE RUGGED BEAUTY OF THE MOJAVE DESSERT.

HIS STYLE HONORS BOTH FORM AND FUNCTION. THIS YEAR ALLEN WILL BE ONE OF THE WHITNEY MUSEUM A 2014 BIENNIAL ARTISTS. THEY DESCRIBE HIS SCULPTURES AS “REMARKABLY COMPLEX AND BEGUILING”.
