‘Allan Rodewald's experimentation and versatility with a wide variety of traditional and cutting-edge artistic techniques, styles and mediums coalesce to sire yet a new take on aleatoric art. A kind of choreographed chaos or directed entropy make his brand of aleatoric abstraction both accessible to the uninitiated while permitting him to stretch further than pure aleatory alone. By slightly narrowing the gamut of possibility, Rodewald reveals a delicate serendipity that unbridled pandemonium would obliterate, once again illustrating that freedom is appreciated only relative to that from which it is free.’
