About the Work
Who can resist a portal into another world? Light and color beckon. The transport is swift: John McAllister's large-scale paintings and panoramas hold your hand while keeping you on a need-to-know basis as perspectives shift, borders interrupt, and the landscape saturates. Balance was achieved before you arrived. The world is dimensional but flat, sculptural with the serenity of a still life. In nature's fertile decoration, we become immersed in the ordered chaos of pattern and colorful echoes of Pierre Bonnard, Henri Matisse, and Édouard Vuillard. In ember blazons lazing daze, we are treated to a series of fifteen unique works by McAllister. The base print features a glowing scene of trees and brush surrounded by a massive border in which McAllister has taken pastel delight, electrifying each piece with hand-embellishments. The result is an intimate series, like a postcard from a dream.
John McAllister has a forthcoming solo exhibition at Wentrup Gallery (Berlin) in fall 2020. Previous solo exhibitions have been held at James Fuentes (New York), Richard Telles Fine Art (Los Angeles), Shane Campbell Gallery (Chicago), and Carl Freedman Gallery (London) among others. His work has been included in group exhibitions at Le Consortium art center (Dijon, France), Marciano Art Foundation (Los Angeles), Almine Rech Gallery (Paris), and more. His work is included in both the Rubell Family Collection and the collection of the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. McAllister lives and works in Northampton, Massachusetts.
Authentication & Resale
This work is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed and numbered by the artist.
Be sure to keep your Certificate of Authenticity (COA) in a safe place. We are unable to replace or reissue COAs.

All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
