Allan Simpson (1935 - )

Allan Simpson's work in landscape painting features New York City Skylines, harbors, rivers and bridges, the Hudson River Valley, Palisades and vistas, and the Long Island Shorelines and tidal flows.

He uses three elements in his analysis of city skyline, river valleys and ocean shoreline:
  -The contours of natural settings, hillside bluffs or mountains, still waters and tidal flows, and long vista and horizons in relation to shapes and objects in the middle distance.
  -The impact of design and imposed human order, especially the geometry of parks, cultivation of forests, placement of public light sources and the construction of large scale earth works, usually in contrast with natural forms.
  -The tracing of large graceful machines and buildings, elaborating their engineering elegance and power to create and destroy our visual environment. These are sometimes obvious, sometimes in disguise, sometimes in ruin abandonment, but always relating to the larger natural setting.

The purpose of each work is to suggest the power of industrial design against the robust evolutionary power of nature. He brings his sense of special form, subdues color, and the intimate distance to his complex geometries of architecture and machines.
