Maura Allen
Denver, Colorado

Maura’s work borrows techniques from pop art and subject matter from Western art to create a new genre in itself. “The way story and cinema, song and symbol, landscape and legends combine and contribute to our real and imagined view of the West is my focus,” says Maura. She starts each piece on location–rodeos and ranches–looking for iconic shapes that will translate well into her pop pieces. Maura continues, “In my studio, working on wood panel, glass and steel, I combine ‘Old West’ elements like vintage wallpaper designs, typography and other symbols with those modern day Western moments resulting in a confluence of old and new, historic and modern.” Drawing on inspiration from greats like Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg, Maura’s pop-Western fusion paintings make a bold statement.
