“I closed my mouth and spoke to you in a hundred silent ways” - Rumi
Artspace111 is proud to present the solo exhibition, A Hundred Silent Ways, by Dallas artist Carly Allen-Martin. Inspired by the art of story-telling, Allen-Martin creates complex narratives through the careful placement of line and juxtaposition of color. Her latest body of work focuses on the physical application of creating the work, emphasizing rich colors, layers, textures, and a variety of surfaces.
Allen-Martin earned her BFA in painting from Texas Christian University in 2007. She has studied internationally at Santa Reparata International School of art in Florence, Italy, The European Academy of Fine Art in Trier, Germany, Aoyama Gakuin University in Tokyo, Japan, and attended a residency at TheVernmont Studio Center. Allen-Martin is represented by Laura Rathe Fine Art in Dallas and Houston, and Artspace111 Gallery in Fort Worth. Her work has been purchased by both private and public collections across the country, including the permanent collection of Texas Christian University, Neeley School of Business.
