Allan Linder Exhibits new paintings at the Hoorn-Ashby Gallery in New York City 

New York, NY:  Allan Linder exhibits new paintings at the Hoorn-Ashby Gallery located at 700 Madison Ave.New York, NY10021.

The title of the exhibition is “Summer in the City” featuring only scenes of New York City.


An excerpt from a critique of the painting titled “Downtown Blue” featured in the exhibition.

What is most evident is the treatment of the light from the sky, from the water, from the streetlights, from the reflected buildings. Light is the protagonist in this work, almost above the subject matter. The triangles you use to divide the canvas are brilliant compositional devices. The slightly higher vantage point into the painting places the viewer as an observer of the scene and not a participant. The dark umber under the fence serves as a strong, firm foundation and grounding device. The eye is led into and around the painting discovering the details that are nicely modeled where they need to be and left a bit vague where they are not necessary. All the elements in the painting, including the deep, rich, saturated color reinforce and enhance the appreciation of the spectacle you present.

In "Downtown Blue" the sensations are transmitted. Similar to the sensations generated by the French Impressionists, with a slightly Pop sensibility thrown in. You have an eye for composition and the balance of forces within the painting. This painting, more than the others, is witness to that. Keep up the courage.

Allan Linder has strived for nearly three decades to hone and perfect his style and skill. His most recent paintings depict scenes of New York in various seasons. The subject matter ranges from moments of peaceful silence in a burgeoning and populated locale, to busy street scenes in the heart of Time Square. No matter what season the artist paints, his use of color and texture will certainly make you smile. He captures New York City in all of its unique and energetic essence. His work can be seen online, or in several Galleries in New York City.
[Announcement - Allan Linder - 2Ko - 2007]




Allan Linder (1966, California, United States) makes paintings, drawings, digital work, mixed media artworks, sculpture and much more. With a conceptual approach, Linder absorbs the tradition of making art into a daily practice. This personal follow-up and revival of a past tradition is important as an act of meditation.




His collected, altered and own paintings are being confronted as aesthetically resilient, thematically interrelated material for memory and projection. The possible seems true and the truth exists, but it has many faces, as Hanna Arendt cites from Franz Kafka. By contesting the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, he tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way, likes to involve the viewer in a way that is sometimes physical and believes in the idea of function following form in a work.


His works directly respond to the surrounding environment and uses everyday experiences from the artist as a starting point. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context. By applying abstraction, he creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles.


His works don't always reference recognizable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. Allan Linder currently lives and works in New York City.

[Biography - Allan Linder - 17Ko]


Allan Linder was born in 1966, the great grandson of Italian Immigrants. His father deserted his family when Linder was only eight years of age, leaving Linder and his three siblings to be raised in a nomadic lifestyle that prominently plays a role in his body of work.A versatile artist from early childhood, Linder instinctively knew how to draw filling endless sketchbooks with his imagination. At the age of fifteen he was nationally acknowledged placing him in the top ten percent of art students in America. Linder went on to receive the Bank of America award for achievement in art and was given a financial scholarship. In 1984 he exhibited his already substantial body of work in his first gallery showing, exhibits of which now spread from Los Angeles to New York City.

Allan Linder is currently exhibiting in Sao Paulo, Brazil; Hamburg, Germany; Paris, France and New York City. He also has a permanent collection on display in Los Angeles, California. He continues to work with a fever of enthusiasm and unceasing passion, challenging the viewer’s intellect as well as embracing the soul.

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.”
