Dominico Gallery First to Exhibit Lingerie Blueprint Collection
WISE VA -- A completely new exhibition of ten fine art images by Allio entitled "Lingerie Blueprints" will be on display in the Dominico Gallery for the first half of 1999. This is Allio's second exhibition in this New Mexico fine art gallery.
"This is the premiere showing of the Lingerie Blueprint Exhibition," Allio said. "Each work is intended to represent blue pencil line drawings. Although not all of these artworks are typical of my fully nude figures in art, this represents the next creative step beyond the Blue Watch Collection of 1997."
As with many of Allio's works, these works began as still frame black-and-white photographs. The images were then digitally enhanced to complete the work. There were as many as 22 distinct steps in the creative process from concept to finished artwork.
These images will be on display from January 1, 1999, through June 30, 1999. The ten art photos were selected based on a specific theme request from the gallery.
Allio will celebrate his 25th Anniversary as a professional photographer and digital artist in 1999. The photographer was born in 1955 in the Commonwealth of Virginia, USA. He is a graduate of the University of Virginia with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Communications and Visual Arts. His fine art nudes have been exhibited worldwide.
