Edition 1 of 1
Airbrush on repurposed London bus panel
56 x 70cm
Canadian Artist Christina Allan, known for her dramatic airbrushed paintings, received her BFA in Painting from Parsons the New School for Design in 2017. At the heart of her fantastic and existential paintings is a deep societal anxiety in which her characters often mirror themselves, staring down the barrel of nothingness.
Allan's paintings explore the work of existential philosophers like Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sartre while using ancient mythology to represent ingrained experiences on the human psyche. She sees her work as being akin to the ways in which mythic beings provided answers to the unexplainable mysteries of existence; love, death, fear, and conflict can be faced subconsciously in the therapeutic escape of making. The state presented in Christina Allan's paintings is a testament to the inexplicable and man's perpetual pursuit of the infinite. She is based in Toronto, Canada and her work can be found in collections across North America and Europe.

Popcorn and cascade bidding:
If a bid is placed during the last 2 minutes of the auction, the closing time will be automatically extended for an additional 2 minutes from the time the last bid was placed. The item will close once all bidding activity has stopped. This is recommended for high-value and popular items. Popcorn bidding prevents bidders from waiting until the last minute to bid without giving the bidders who were outbid an opportunity to rebid.
Cascade bidding ensures auction lots close at staggering times, one after another. For example, the first lot of an auction might close at 12:01pm, the second lot would close at 12:02pm, then the third lot at 12:03pm, etc.
