More Phillip Allen Paintings!

The way he has handled the paint in the top of the second painting is so interesting. He is successful at combining the painterly and hard edged in a very unique way. Heather told me that he makes the blobs of paint apart and twists them to the forms he wants and needs. I can see Tomma Abts' influence in the way he uses shadows (unless he was doing it first).
