American born painter, William Allan, is a modernist who creates surreal and abstract images. His goal is to make the familiar unfamiliar through juxtaposition. He says he is less interested in making something entirely new than he is in changing what is already there. Besides painting, his other pastime is fishing. “Albacore” is part of a series influenced by his love of fishing. Watercolors of fish are displayed alongside simple stories also written by Allan,illuminating metaphors that are open to interpretation by the viewer.
