Second Chances: Sterling Allen and Brad Tucker
Join the Department of Art and Art History as we feature new work by artists Sterling Allen and Brad Tucker.
By way of play, improvisation, or formal reconsideration, Allen and Tucker’s works flirt at a reconciliation between image and object. The works remain, by matter of fact or material, overtly linked to the utilitarian. Common material is both predicated and transmuted in off-the-wall arrangements or unparalleled revisions. In addition to tactile affinities, color and shape figure prominently.
Both Allen and Tucker are currently based in Austin and hold an MFA in Sculpture from Milton Avery Graduate School of the Artist, Bard College (2014 and 2008). In addition, they each have work in public collections such as the Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art and the Houston Museum of Fine Art.
Sterling Allen is a co-founder and co-director of Okay Mountain, an artist collective and former gallery based in Austin, Texas. As a solo artist and in collaborator, he has exhibited, organized, and completed projects at venues throughout the United States.
Brad Tucker is represented by Inman Gallery in Houston and has exhibited both nationally and internationally. From 1999-2000 he was an artist resident in the Core Program, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX.
