"JUSTIN HUNTER ALLEN studied art at the
Cooper Union for the Advancement of 
Science and Art in New York, then spent
a few years on the Continent, as one does,
taking a well-deserved break from the
intrigues of the art world's trading
floor. Allen presents himself as an
enigma, but his art is anything but the
strong, silent type. Like so many of his
peers nurtured in the hothouse of the New
York art scene, Allen's art gravitates
toward modest, yet consequential, gestures.
A smallish work titled Wave, 2008 presents
an animated square of acrylic color on
cardboard mounted on a stretcher. It could
be a riff on Blinky Palermo or Richard
Tuttle, except the lower right corner of
the cardboard is migrating from its base
as if acknowledging our presence. I am not
certain if the painting is waving or
drowning. His Darling, after all these
years (Is there sex after T.V.?), 2012,
[not pictured], is like a visual noises-off,
an entombed bit of interference that one
imagines could have taken place slightly
offside of an erotic tete-a-tete."

"I am only concerned with painting. Digital media and the internet only happen to exist. They also dominate the landscape and articulate our conversation in 2013. My practice is confused by an assumption of relevancy, but there is no relevant in modernity. Public exhibitions like digital media are something very different from painting itself. They are a political contextualization of the role of [the artist] in a larger community. The painting itself has no role in that community, it is beside itself, I can't imagine it has anything to say." -Justin Hunter Allen
