Noir: A Love Affair is a collection of abstract paintings and works on paper that celebrate the artist's signature use of black set against fields of white. This group of paintings reflect influences of style, architecture, and geometric simplicity in glossy acrylic and rich India ink. The collection explores concepts of imperfection, simplicity, movement and the sophistication of the color black, and speaks to the timely relevance of the beauty and necessity of reconciling white with black.

Angela Allen is best known for her black and white minimalist paintings in acrylic and India ink. The use of her signature black, birthed from a love for tall city buildings, the glamour of old black and white movies, and Chanel's Little Black Dress, marries sophistication with imperfect brush strokes, simple lines and geometric shapes. Her art is influenced by Richard Serra, Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman and Eduardo Chillida.
