New York Paintings

Allan Linder works within the precincts of acrylic on canvas, in the mien of such inspirations as Gustave Doré and Salvador Dali, to create a sizeable collection of surrealist reflections of an urban environment. With a memory of a city’s movement and its stillness (people and objects), Linder captures the incessant and unyielding nexus of an, at times, overwhelming locale. His anonymous subjects pass with hidden faces, nameless strangers, one after another. "By observation I examine the form and the shape of how things are made, and then I return to my studio with a renewed vigor. I pour over my canvas for hours and days and it seems like minutes and seconds."

Linder’s inquiry through art has been a life long effort, having won a ‘Bank of America’ artistic scholarship at the age of eighteen and continuing on to exhibit up and down the coast of California, where he originally began his career. As in Center of it All in what seems an open lens look at a non-stop Times Square, memory merges with reality to posit an inexhaustible view of an insomniac metropolis.

Linder reflects, "When my paintbrush flows my life has rhythm and everything has its tides. I enjoy exploring life’s little paradoxes through my artwork. After all one can never stop learning."
