BYDealers Auction House Biography and Notes

During Edmund Alleyn's stay in France from 1955 to 1970, his early nonfigurative painting gradually gave way to figuration. The return to the iconographic motif and to a more thematic approach to painting that began with Suite indienne (1962-64) "took a more radical turn when Alleyn joined the Narrative Figuration movement, members of which were noted for their political activism," according to art historian Gilles Lapointe (Lanctôt, Dans mon atelier, je suis plusieurs, Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, 2016) At his solo exhibition at the Delta Gallery, Rotterdam, in 1967, Alleyn introduced such pictorial elements as electric scalpels and electronic circuits to underscore humanity's "equivocal relationship with technology" and to illustrate the peculiar dynamics between the "artificial" and "organic" (ibid.) worlds. These dynamics take centre stage in Sans titre/Untitled (1966), in which he assembles elements from the technological and scientific sphere, which seem to float above an indigo background, suggesting a vacuum or a parallel universe. This painting echoes Le Rôdeur, produced the same year and purchased by the Musée national de beaux-arts du Québec.
