Philip Allen at Transition Gallery

December 8, 2009 by Ellie

Philip Allen is currently showing new work in a group show called Rubbernecking at Transition Gallery, London. Also showing are Jake Clark and Rose Wylie.

4 Dec 2009 – 10 Jan 2010

Gallery open Fri-Sun 12-6pm  (closed from 25 Dec - 3 Jan)

Transition Gallery, Unit 25a Regent Studios, 8 Andrews Road, London E8 4QN

Rubbernecking, the slang expression that describes the act of gawking at someone or something, particularly car crashes, is not only a look-come-see inducement to the curious viewer but also refers to a tendency underscoring the work of these three artists, all of whom are concerned in some way with a tension between a cartoon graphic quality and the rough texture of impasto paint.  Each of our three gawpers are concerned with new ways of applying paint to create personal and fresh images that crash with the faded Festival of Britain feeling that permeates the surfaces of their work creating a counter-intuitive, bang-up-to-date contemporary.
