Lot Details

This geometric work on canvas by John McAllister depicts a vibrant linear still-life, comprised of fruit, jars, and a bottle, set against a patterned background that seems to echo across the canvas. Recognized for his unique layering style, McAllister often blends vibrant pattern with abbreviated landscapes and still-life, resulting in hybrid, dynamic works. McAllister's works have been described as "mash-ups", combining multiple perspectives, techniques, color, as well as subject matter.
