From a series of palm tree paintings featuring palm trees from around the globe high up in the sky. The series began during the first lockdown when we were all dreaming of varied scenery from around the world. Each of the pieces are named after beaches, cities or towns. Painted in oils on gesso wood panel using a vibrant palette and expressive brush marks.
Alanna Eakin, painter, is available for sale online and in our art gallery at Wychwood Art. Alanna Eakin is an emerging British painter. She completed a BA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martin’s London, graduating in 2010. It is only in the past few years Alanna has gone on to seriously develop her professional art career and has since taken part in several exhibitions and art fairs in London and nationwide. Alanna is currently working from her studio in Wimbledon, London.
Alanna creates gestural abstract paintings inspired by the sensations, forms, light and colours found in nature. She has an obsession with colour, rural landscapes from around the world and also florals found in nature. Form can often develop in her paintings but usually as a result of previously made marks and intuition and it not entirely representational.
Alanna's work has an initial immediacy when she creates. She predominantly uses acrylic paint and sometimes a mixture of other mediums to layer, edit and experiment. Bold colours to wash the canvas building up several layers and balancing the notions around the canvas. Later there becomes a play-off of spontaneity and controlled abstract mark-making. Brush marks, contrast and colour play an important role in the desired result.
Alanna's approach is inspired by the likes of Joan Mitchell, Helen Frankenthaler, Monet, Tracey Emin, Peter Doig, Georgia O'Keeffe and many more.
