Alicja Gear Biography
Alicja responds to a sense of atmosphere and play of light across the landscape with her expressive oil paintings. Capturing those moments of delight at the way the light dances across the landscape.
The combination of the large gestural marks and bold use of colour leads you on a journey into the landscape whilst still exploring the nature of the medium. Handling the paint, the selection and laying it on, a cumulation of single marks which coalesce into a whole.
Alicja has studied drawing and painting informally in London and New Zealand.
Exhibition Statement:
Noun; The vehicle which enables us to see.
This series of work examines the role light has in creating both positive and negative space within a scene. The light itself creates a positive effect by allowing something to be seen but it also becomes a negative space as a flat reflective surface between the rocks, mudflats or through the silhouette of trees. Light is in a constant state of change, particularly apparent during the transitional time at the beginning and end of the day.
These scenes are impressions of mere moments. Moments in which the breath is released, and we are present. Our demanding lives fall away as we observe the play of light on the water. The changing colours in the clouds and awe at the wonder of our beautiful world. Then consider the time that that moment takes, and in reality it is miniscule. In the cumulation of moments what is really important? Our existence is merely a blip.
