“Round and Round” by Johnathan Allen
paper, paint, ink on canvas, 36 x 46 inches, 2012 

“Round and Round” evokes the circularity of globalization, and the interconnectedness  of seemingly disparate communities within our digital era. It includes imagery of Bengali  children playing on a ferris wheel, and a privileged white woman striding along with  her smartphone. The work is composed using layers of newsprint, paint, appliance  catalogues, and advertising imagery.
