About the Event
Save the date! Var Gallery is pleased to welcome John Alleyne with a solo exhibition opening on Saturday, December 9, 2023.
John Alleyne is an artist from the island of Barbados, currently based in New Orleans, LA. His work is rooted in an exploration of "freedom," connecting his lived experience with an intuitive process of painting and silkscreen mark-making. Alleyne looks for perfection in the imperfect. The untraditional use of unhinged silkscreens and squeegees are utilized as mark-making tools to create painterly gestures of figurative-abstraction. Within these gestures, Alleyne challenges notions of love, belonging, healing, beauty, manhood, and masculinity.
