LLANOR ALLEYNE

BIOGRAPHY

Llanor Alleyne is a Barbados-born, New York-raised mixed media artist. Exploring the transformation and transfiguration of female selfhood through the use of paint and photography, her work breaks away from the conventional demands of modern collage-making by using originally created abstract paintings on various materials, including mylar and paper, to examine female figurative presentation and the empathetic rapport women are often assumed to have with the natural world.
