Paintings Coming Soon

November 18, 2016

I'm excited to announce that a new works, similar to Nautilistoid and Ancient Stone Work will be ready soon. The new painting similar to Ancient Stone Art, it will be 24"x24" instead of 12"x12" and similar in that much of the final finsih will be completed using glazes and a platte knife, however the cloros are cooler in tone. The Nautilistoid style of paintings are very labor intense so I only produce a couple a year. All of the sculpting of the textures and the body has been completed, all that is left is to applying the finish to each cell of the fossil. If a patron has interest, the work is at the point where there is room for input as to color palette selection. Also close to completion is a braided river triptych, it will be two panels of 30"x15" with a center panel of 30"x24". Keep checking back a lot of new art will be up for the holidays.

Best of the Seasons.

New Mexico University

March 15, 2016

The journay has been completed. Nautulistoid is installed at Castetter Hall School of Biology and Genomic Research at the University of New Mexico. It was a fun project and I'm now in the offical world of having completed a public arts project. Since most calls for public arts require previous public arts experience, this is a big step forward in my career.

New Mexico Comes Calling

May 1, 2015

The State of New Mexico, Department of Cultural Affairs has offered a contract to purchase "Nautalistoid". The painting is a 48' X 36" multi media cross section of a fossil known as an Ammonite. The painting was purchased by the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque and will hang at Castetter Hall, School of Biology and Genomic Research. This is very exciting, not just to have my work in another public space, which is wonder in itself. But career wise it gives me a break in to the world of public art. Often times when bidding on public projects previous experience with publicaly funded projects is required. So this is a big hurdle to leap career wise. Three cheers to the State of New Mexico. Installation will take place later this year and I'm excited to visit New Mexico, I have found memories of living there.

The Paseo Exhibit Goes Dark

December 28, 2014

With sadness the Oklahoma City exhibition comes to a close. It was great getting to see friends I hadn't seen in years and to make new friends over the past month. To all of my patrons that made the event a success I thank you. Nothing is more gratifing to an artist that knowing that their art is on display in people's lifes, hopefully making their home or place of work a bit brighter each day. I look forward to hearing from any of you and hope that you enjoyed the exhibit and your acquisions. Stay tuned for the 2015 work I'm planning a shift to a bit more of a minimaliatic approach to my work and look forward to your feedback as the year progresses. Warmest Regards...Joeallen

Exhibit's Opening Night

December 6, 2014

The opening night of the exhibit was great. It was fun to see so many people from the community out and enjoying art. It was a lot of fun seeing folks that I had not seen for quite some time. I feel the reception was a success, selling two pieces the first evening. The combination of geology and art seems to be well received. There was holiday cheer in the air and carolers on the street increasing the festive atmosphere.
