Principles and elements of painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture all come together into one application.  Mostly on paper or on plywood panel, a wide-range of content goes through a vigorous and rigorous process.  With oil paint, plaster, charcoal and collage, Alan develops richly dynamic surfaces using additive and deductive “marks” – an image, a scrape, a slash of paint, etc.  His concepts range from layered portraits, figures, dresses, fingerprints, Americana icons, walls, stencil and text.  Overall, Alan’s style falls inside Traditional and a Contemporary Art.   With figurative academia and unconventionality of the avant-garde experimentation Alan brings forth boldness, sensitivity and playfulness with a dark spin.
