With a real sense of depth and energy, this painting evokes ideas of worlds within worlds. Overlapping layers of marks, patterns and transparent glazes create a fascinating surface to be enjoyed close up, while the sense of depth and contrast gives the composition impact from a distance. "Where There's a Will" is so named as creating it was a challenge! There were elements in the layers that I loved, but the final composition was eluding me. I kept telling myself that "where there's a will there's a way" and kept going adding and subtracting to the canvas until finally the perfect composition emerged. This painting is a great reminder to me of the importance of persevering until you get the desired result. This painting comes framed in a simple contemporary natural wood tray frame, ready to hang.

Alison is a British contemporary abstract artist and painter, based in Somerset, England. With a degree in textile design, and many years of art making behind her, paintings are developed with a primary focus on colour, pattern and texture. She loves to explore ideas around visual contrasts and creates work that makes a bold visual statement from a distance, but also has richly layered surfaces full of depth and interest close to. Work is made intuitively, drawing on decades of visual memory. Inspiration can be a mood or feeling, a memory, a place, even a symbol or the power of a word or a phrase. This may sometimes be incorporated in the finished piece in the form of visible or abstracted text.
