View the Realistic Artist’s Unique Artwork Through January 2019

Allan Gorman, a New Jersey based artist, will present a solo exhibition of paintings, titled “The Seduction of Structure,” at the County College of Morris Art and Design Gallery from Nov. 26 through Jan. 28.

Realistic painting focused on a design of crisscrossed lines created by girders. A long pigeon sits just off middle. Looking skyward, soft pastel hues create a background reminiscent of sunset.

The collection of paintings focuses on the intricacies of every day architectural structures, such as highways and electrical towers, that are oftentimes overlooked by passersby.

A reception, which is free and open to the public, will be held Thursday, Jan. 24, from 5 to 7 p.m. The gallery is located in the Sherman H. Masten Learning Resource Center on CCM’s Randolph campus, 214 Center Grove Road.

CCM Art Gallery Welcomes Allan Gorman Exhibit Opening Nov. 26

Artist Allan Gorman

To capture his unconventional subjects, Gorman travels the American landscape and focuses on buildings, elevated trains, gas stations and machines. Hidden abstract patterns, random shapes and aesthetic tensions in manufactured objects fascinates him. He says that his subject is a mere starting point for his formal and expressive exploration and defines his works as abstract compositions nested in the guise of realism.

His work has been included in more than 100 showings in museum exhibitions, galleries and major art fairs. In addition, many corporate and private collections throughout the United States and Europe feature his artwork.
