Making The Cut

Thomas Allen, Unreachable, 2009, Chromogenic print, 20 x 24 inches

Thomas Allen cuts two-dimensional figures and images out of old books, and combines them with vintage pulp fiction novels, to create three-dimensional scenes. Once he has  formed the three-dimensional art objects, Thomas remakes them again as two-dimensional ones in his energetic dramatic photographs.  His work is influenced by his childhood experiences with pop-up books and view master reels. He has exhibited with Foley Gallery, NY and work can also be viewed here.
