Statement

My work pulls from a multitude of experiences and perspectives that often result in seemingly inconsequential interactions between object and space.  The imagery employed can be as disjunctive as modern life while at times struggling to point to the latest breaking sound bite that is forgotten by days end.  I cannot always predict where visual information is going to bear its head, so I continue to search and question the things I see and experience.  Some days it’s the visual imagery swirled from a novel or conversation, others it’s a science illustration from elementary school and still others could come running from an open garage.  No matter the source I am eager to attempt the conjunction of actions, objects and places.  Configuration and design are at the heart of these equations and are exercised in an attempt to provide the spin between the fragmented stories and the spaces they inhabit.  While I have employed simultaneity affording multiple possibilities I must say I’m most content with the disjuncture of daily life.  - J. Todd Allison
