Fantastical, abstracted desert scene. A peak inside the artist's head as she references childhood memories of her seaside upbringing, and collides these memories with the California landscape where she now resides. Dragonflies, beetles, trees, fields, and mountains. Dozens of planes turned upright and flattened against the picture plane to create visual excitement.
Santa Barbara, California
Australian-born Alana Clumeck was raised by artistic parents who owned a pottery studio during her youth. Although she grew up throwing pots, it wasn’t until she was pregnant with her second child that she began painting as creative therapy. For Alana, being an artist is entwined with motherhood. She works from her home studio, so she often paints while watching her children play. When the kids are at school, painting becomes precious meditative time alone. “Since my discovery of art came as a form of therapy, I still use it to paint out my thoughts or feelings,” says Alana. “I will often use symbolism within my paintings to represent how I feel.”
