Alanna Eakin’s Style and Practice
Alanna uses an exotic palette of rich and saturated colours to bring her paintings to life - a staple and decidedly abstract technique connecting all her works. Drawing inspiration from her travels and interest in places devoid of human activity, Alanna produces effusive scenes that spill out from the canvas. She wishes to translate the comforting and calming nature of these open spaces in her art. Accompanying the elements of abstraction, though, remarkable figurative features, suggestive of flora and fauna, emerge from the dusky, blush paint marks. Working in several mediums, including oil and acrylic, Alanna intuitively blends and layers her works, letting the paintbrush translate memory into form.
