Culver City

Alma Allen

Blum & Poe

January 10 through February 28, 2015

Allen, like so many artists, is interested in precariousness and imbalance, and how to convey those sensations. He's using intensely heavy material -- marble, travertine, walnut -- and taking some inspiration from nature in his new sculptures. He also hurt himself while carving obsessively recently and took the chance to develop software so that he wouldn't have to rely on any third party, and could keep his preoccupation with precariousness in house.
