About Ricky

Raised Mormon, Ricky Allman was taught to prepare for the Apocalypse – a complete and final destruction of the world. Sure he wouldn’t live to see adulthood, he aligned with dystopian visions of his future. In his 20s, he moved from Utah’s protective mountain landscape to the city of Boston, where he saw the skyscrapers vulnerable to destruction, ready to crash down with the slightest provocation. The city became an apocalyptic metaphor for his life. He began to study the way architecture interacts and overlaps with nature, and how it dominates or is dominated by its surroundings. Ricky explores architectural spaces in his work to play out his fascinations and fears, utopia and dystopia, and issues of faith and doubt.

"Comment “What a vision! ! ! Mr. Allman’s paintings show us strange but delightful worlds. Ricky’s works should be examined closely for the full effect. Although I usually favor more representational landscape and genre art , I am always amazed by this man’s works that illustrate his vision of beautiful pseudo-mountanous landscapes.” Have a look ! ! !"
