ALLEN BENTLEY

Driving for me is about freedom. This isn’t about how it looks but how it feels. Power, anticipation, exhilaration: to slip through on the edge of control. It’s finding that line between forward and stillness. Just like in the paintings, speed blurs the world as your focus is sharpened, spirit is calmed as you burn through space. This work is about freedom to be in a moment. It’s an energy that pushes ever onward. This is Momentum.

The pursuit of real interaction drives so much of our relationships. Whether under water or in dance, my work explores intimacy and connection through motion. Energy and passion, rhythm and play guide my figures through moments of reaching, spinning, holding. We chase one another in the hopes of finding a similar resonance, an affinity with another.
