Jamie Allen (MFA 2020) Interviewed in Two Coats of Paint

Jamie Allen, Faded Flower Patterns of Memories, 2022, oil on wood, 14 1/2 x 17 1/4 inches

“While the paintings definitely begin in more of an intuitive manner, the way in which the space becomes articulated revolves around the idea of creating a structure, similar to a scaffold, that can then be built upon itself; playing with the edges of the rectangle and the way in which the forms can be considered both within and outside of the space. There’s an idea of framing within most of the compositions—rectilinear anchors at the corners, which maybe contributes to the feeling of a window and then the intuitive, more organic strokes that get layered on top create that sense of depth and space, as if they go beyond and recede in space.” – Jamie Allen
