'Arthur Phillip puts his head down, Barangaroo 1788' by Allan Rand at CHAUFFEUR, Sydney

American painter, Ed Paschke once spoke about painting, in which the viewer more or less completes the circuit, like electronic energy. The paintings send out certain vibes, or degrees of energy, and there is no one correct response to it. Allan Rand, in a sense, simply reaffirms Paschke’s view on the importance of receivership. Rand’s practice is ambiguous by nature. A visual language which is not merely intended to bring about a certain pedagogical outcome. 

There is a sense of free flow, virtuous and awareness employed in the quality and richness in Rand’s painting, however, the work is not random or arbitrary. His painting narratives borrow from history, culture and anthropology with strong sense of importance to site specificity, context and materiality - encourages thought and provokes disclosure that makes the work such a mystic pleasure.
