Delaney Allen’s mystic photographic oeuvre

Delaney Allen’s alluring art practice consists of the capture of photographs of landscape, still life, and the self portrait, implementing intricate focus on texture and composition from the world around her. Allen’s landscapes stand out immediately in their ephemeral notions. Seeing  the artist’s images, one sees things that they normally wouldn’t experience, even if they were on location. When looking at these rare images, they become aware that these natural subjects will only be captured like this once, and otherwise exist in other ways. This empowers Delaney Allen’s work and almost gives it a sense of mysticism for me. In the consideration of the artist’s series of artworks, one cannot ignore Allen’s repeated use of loud-patterned fabrics to create a great variety of color and texture that work together to create very comprehensive, pulling images.
