Ash Allen – Soft Shade - Paris Ass Book Fair

Ash Allen a.k.a. Soft Shade uses experimental photography and printmaking methods to create works on canvas, glass, and other materials that relate to queer identity and personal transformation. Through portraiture and photo manipulation, he explores the conceptual boundaries that separate our physical and spiritual realities. Meditation and observations of the mind have a profound impact on Allen’s work, whose ethereal themes are mirrored by his methods of printmaking techniques that rely heavily on light and water — both of which represent vitality. Allen’s body of work serves as an invitation to look deeper into themes of identity, ego, and self-awareness.
