Artist Statement

Based in the Washington, D.C. area with a background in Sacred Space/Cultural Studies in Architecture and Sustainable Design, John T Allen focuses on questions of temporality as explored through a body of work spanning over a decade in a wide range of mediums from mixed media to collage, digital art, photography, and music with a specific focus on prehistory, the built environment, and the natural world. Permian Designs represents the core of this ethos through visual media while its offshoot, A Virtual Memory [which John has been operating under the pseudonym "S. Taillifer" since 2017], explores these notions through sound in the form of a continuous, ever-evolving musical narrative.
