Alana Gunn is an emerging contemporary abstract artist and creative based in the Northern Rivers of NSW, Australia. As a self taught artist, her practice has evolved from her many years of working within the world of graphic and textile design.
Alana is inspired by the intuitive process of abstraction and groundedness of self. Her artworks evoke a calming nature with layers of depth and mystery. Textural markings coincide with an earthy natural palette in dreamlike movement. These forms are reflective of the artist’s state of mind; stillness, trust and alignment.
Working her way in a soft gestural and meditative approach, the artist layers mediums of clay plaster, earth pigments, sand and acrylics. Her first body of work for 2021, NATURAL HABITAT, is currently exhibiting at Newrybar Merchants.
