Allan Linder

Allan Linder is an award-winning New York artist known for his dynamic range and style across multiple mediums throughout the art world, including comic books, animation, television, and character design. Allan Linder (1966, California, United States) makes paintings, drawings, digital work, mixed media artworks, sculptures, and much more. Linder absorbs the tradition of making art into daily practice with a conceptual approach. This personal follow-up and revival of a tradition are important as an act of meditation. His collected, altered, and own paintings are being confronted as aesthetically resilient, thematically interrelated material for memory and projection. The possibility seems true and the truth exists, but it has many faces, as Hanna Arendt cites Franz Kafka. By contesting the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, he tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way, likes to involve the viewer in a sometimes physical way, and believes in the idea of function following form in a work. His works directly respond to the surrounding environment and the artist uses everyday experiences as a starting point. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context. By applying abstraction, he creates intense personal moments masterfully created using rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles.
