Terry Allen

About Artist: Terry Allen was born May 7th, 1943 in Wichita, Kansas. He is a country music singer, painter and conceptual artist from Lubbock, Texas. He now lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He is an independent artist working since 1966 in a wide variety of media including musical and theatrical performances, sculpture, painting, drawing and video, and installations which incorporate any and all of these media. Trained as an architect, he received a B.F.A. from the Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles. His art has been supported by three National Endowment for the Arts grants and a prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship. His work "Tree" is installed on the campus of the University of California, San Diego as part of the Stuart Collection. His works are represented in the collections of many international museums including the New York Museum of Modern Art, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, Espace Lyonnais d'Art Contemporain, Musée Saint-Pierre, Lyon, France, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Dallas Museum of Art and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art. Kansas City, Missouri is home to both his controversial public sculpture "Modern Communication", a bronze sculpture of a businessman, standing on a briefcase; a tie covers his eyes, his fingers are in his ears, and there's a shoe in his mouth. His legendary story-telling ability is key to his creative productivity. His modern folklore is skillfully drafted from historical events, personal memories, theater, song and iconic images from both American TV and the American landscape. Allen’s underlying narratives give form to drawn images, sculptures, recordings, radio plays and video art. Terry Allen is also considered an innovator of the country scene, a musician and songwriter whose songs have been covered by several bands.
