Micky Allan's paintings are full of light. Not only because her use of luminescent paint makes them shine in hues that change with your point of view, but because of their unusual beauty. The colours are clear, the skies boundless. Harmony arises out of objects put together with little attention to laws of perspective and gravity. Some works are so full of detail they endlessly unfold into something new, others are simple but very powerful. All radiate a peace and stillness which goes beyond this material world but at the same time can be found here in the everyday if you look.
