Micky Allan is one of the most unusual and accomplished of contemporary Australian artists. Pioneering hand-painted photography in the late 70‘s and early 80‘s she has continued to show inventive use of materials and adventurous interplay between media. Her work covers painting, works on paper, installation work (both in its own right and in dialogue with paintings) and, most recently, engraved glass panels over works on paper. She is interested in the dialogue between abstraction and representation and in subjective inner territories that synthesise the diverse and unexpected. Often based on notions of travel or cycles of change, they are drawn from places and cultures she has lived in or travelled to, including landmarks of the Australian landscape.
