CHANGING LIGHT - ALANA CLARKE
Alana’s lively and somewhat dramatic seascape works aim to capture the ever-changing light, mood and atmosphere of the Taranaki coastline. An ability to capture the emotion of a setting, together with the fleeting effects of light on colour and form are what bring the truly expressive works of Alana Clarke to life.
Using intuitive, gestural brushstrokes, she aims for energy and movement, using colour and the paint to evoke sensations.
“I paint to capture something beautiful, but every work also represents a deeper story, belief, or tension. “
- Maryanne Shearman
