Dan M. Allison, "salvadora" (small Proof) 19.5"x 21" Ed. Ap Y.1986:
This is a good example of the artist's unusual plate making techniques, using oil pastels as a resit to block-out areas of the plate while it was etching in the acid bath, and giving those areas a "crayola" drawing effect.
Allison's early, largely autobiographical etchings were notable for their cartoon-like style and exuberant, luminous hues, demonstrating a depth, intensity and clarity of color never before accomplished using traditional aquatint processes. Many of these works displayed an unabashed romanticism, sardonically grappling with the artist's often tumultuous interpersonal relationships with wry humor. Technically demanding, etching editions for this early work were small, numbering between 5 and 65.
Dan Mitchell Allison has harnessed technology for printmaking purposes, using imagery created from three-dimensional, computer-scanned objects and assemblages as well as movie stills and photography as subject matter, which continues to be intimately linked to the artist's concern with serious universal themes. These concerns have been honed by Allison's experiences with artist relief work in war-torn Sarajevo in 1994 on behalf of the Houston-based Artist Rescue Mission.
