John McAllister’s paintings unapologetically celebrate the colorful interiors, landscapes, and still lifes of the Post-Impressionist era, evoking work by Henri Matisse, Pierre Bonnard, and Georges Braque. Inspired by old photographs of Bonnard’s studio, which was scattered with postcards and other ephemera, McAllister makes witty paintings of images of paintings, playing both the role of the artist and the viewer. He toys with illusions of three-dimensionality, but the vibrant color and decorative patterns prevail, reinforcing the flatness of the picture plane.
