Dominic Allan was born in Luton in 1977. He graduated from Chelsea College of Art in 1999, specializing in sculpture. Since then, he has continued making artwork about an obsession with coming from Luton. This has provoked the use of materials as diverse as: customised dodgem cars, gold-leafed lollypop sticks, homemade seaside superhero outfits and children covered in joggle eyes.
‘You Look Good’ brings together 16 new hand-sewn sweet bags by artist Dominic Allan
Each bag is a direct response to a situation Allan has found himself in either personally or professionally, with someone or other. And by himself. The texts spit out from Allan’s everyday. Itself, unremarkable, like the rest of society. Under Allan’s crowded duvet of works for ‘You Look Good’ lie memories of terrace yodelling at Luton Town Football Club, the inconsistencies of being self-employed and the Candyfloss Mountains climbed (in his head) in trying to make it as an artist. Seared off by strangers, John Cooper Clarke, Anthony Burgess, Campag Velocet’s Pete Voss, Berkoff, dead playwright Sarah Kane, the artist’s own brother, away fans and past transport managers.
Anger indeed manifested as art.
The bags reference Allan’s continual re-visiting as an adult of crap seaside towns frequented as a child. Sunshine towns no better than Luton, place of the artists birth. Sweet bag as the throwaway, hand stitched words as his everyday.
