"Allan Linder 20th century and beyond” coffee table art book published by Eloquent Press

New York, NY, December 1, 2007: Eloquent Press is pleased to announce that it has published a new art book on the life work of celebrated international artist Allan Linder.

Allan Linder began drawing and painting from age five, and unlike you and me he never stopped. This beautiful full color art book is co-written by author Todd Gunzelman in association with Eloquent Press. Todd C. Gunzelman is a contemporary American author, inventor and outdoorsman born in Southern California. He is best known for his functional inventions that accomplish simple repetitive tasks. He began his hand at writing at an early age, with several short stories, poetry and eventually his love for the outdoors. But he remained unpublished until now. Allan Linder has lived a fascinating nomadic childhood which led him from coast to coast several times. Eventually he stayed in New York City where he resides in his adulthood. “Allan Linder 20th century and beyond” covers the artists life on the road, his work as a DJ and storyboard artist in Hollywood, to his artist-run gallery in NYC.

This 180 page book is filled with images of the artist, and his paintings and drawings from 1976 to present. Linder’s gritty and vivid paintings of New York City invite you to visit, while his bold and colorful abstracts draw you into his dreams. If you are lucky enough to own one of his paintings, then you already know. Now it's time to know more about him.

Allan Linder 20th century and beyond is available for purchase on Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/Allan-Linder-20th-century-beyond/dp/0557079985

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


New York, NY, May 31, 2007:  Allan Linder exhibits new paintings at the Hoorn-Ashby Gallery located at 700 Madison Ave. New York, NY 10021. 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.








David Genovesi director ARTROM Gallery Rome Italy

[Biography - Allan Linder - 7Ko]

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.”
