Alan is an LA based artist/painter who appropriates images of female models into his mixed media painting processes. His work's context is about a pensive and somber beauty, inherent of the human condition, favored and deeply inspired by women. Alan's style balances between Traditional Realism and the Avant Garde, as the representational female figure emerges throughout layered textural content. When it comes to drawing from models, Alan remains strictly professional during sessions. It's important for the integrity of the work, and to assure that his models are comfortable and focused. Settings for figure drawing usually take place at his studio or onsite locations. Some photography for collage integration into artworks may be negotiated.
