Allan Banford produces abstract paintings, installations as well as music and video productions, his art follows the concept of the artist’s obligation to not maintain a single cohesive style developing a perpetual evolution. By contesting the division between consciousness and reality, he absorbs the tradition of remembrance into a material practice isolating movements, characters, emotions and objects. New sequences reveal an inseparable relationship between motion and space were a multi-layered abstract scenario emerges, involving the viewer on a physical texturized communication.

 

His works directly respond to the surrounding environment and everyday experiences to visually represent them, often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context but by applying the abstraction of his laceration technique, he finds movement that reveals an inherent awkwardness that echoes conceptualized coherency. His artworks don’t express recognisable forms at first glance but the result is deconstructed to the extent that the meaning is multilayered interpreting logical perspectives.

 

He creates intense personal pieces, masterfully completed by his rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring his unique perception to flow.

 

“Aesthetically resilient, thematically interrelated elements of subconsciousness and reality”- ArtSant

 

Award winner of the World Citizen Artist prize, commemorating the first anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s death and legacy, his artworks are also included in numerous private and public collections such as The Mona Flat series commissioned for The Andy Warhol Art Exchange by Absolute exhibit at Saatchi Gallery and his Classic Series featured at the RA Summer Exhibition, acclaimed by critics and public alike alongside “Trust” painting featured at the 40th anniversary of HRH The Prince of Wales charity, The Princess Trust.
