Notes


About 

 

Alanna Eakin (b.1988) is a British painter. She lives in London and works from her studio in Wimbledon. Graduating in 2010 with a BA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martin’s London. Her work is constantly evolving and developing. 
 
Alanna's work is inspired by nature, particularly exotic places like deserts and rainforestd where the colours are richer and highly saturated. She is drawn to vast desolate expanses, voids, devoid of human activity. It is the comforting and calming nature of these places that she wishes to translate to the viewer. 
 
Alanna's work is unapologetically colourful, a staple that has been with her since a young age. Often her technique is decidedly abstracted, however recently she has been producing figurative features like trees and acknowledging the representation between sky and land. 
 
Materials, layers, details and brush marks are almost as important to Alanna as the overall piece. Alanna works in several mediums including oil and acrylic paint and enjoys the way the materials force her to paint with various responses. 
 
Alanna's approach is inspired by the likes of Henri Matisse, Daivd Hockney, Pierre Bonnard, Joan Mitchell, Claude Monet, Peter Doig, Georgia O'Keeffe and many more.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork 

 

Alanna works best using both sides of her artistic mind. One is completely abstract and the other enjoys working figuratively. Both styles are completely expressive and colourful. This series of tropical works developed during the first UK lockdown when we were all dreaming of escaping to paradise. In particular Alanna focuses on close-ups of palm trees inspired by travels of the past. She feels they are expressive and have individual personalities, something she aims to bring to life.
