Alison Percy

Working as a visual artist I am inspired by natural forms – capturing the land, the figure and the flower. My energetic and passionate nature reflects in my continued fascination in the balance and sensitivity of fluid line while mark making!

A recent landscape painting ‘Changing Season, Mount Beauty’ reflects this passion and was the catalyst for this next body of work focusing on ‘Captured Landscapes’ from Alpine areas and across North East Victoria. The layering of calligraphic line into an explosion of colour expressed my felt response to the evident change in season as we came down from the Bogong High Plains into the Kiewa Valley!'

This latest body of work has resulted in my first Melbourne solo exhibition 'Captured Landscapes' at fortyfivedownstairs Flinders Lane, Melbourne. Opening night Tue 22 May 5-7pm. Exhibition runs Tue 22 May - Sat 2 June 2018 and is a series of gouache paintings produced en plein air and acrylic paintings produced back in the studio.

Capturing the Australian landscape while exposed to the elements as it rapidly changes is truly a wondrous experience – it brings such immediacy to the work. The use of intuitive fluid line in my work reflects an honest connection through me as an artist and onto the substrate. My fascination with Japanese calligraphy art is becoming more evident in my work with an evolving use of calligraphic line - I’m not actually looking for that line, it’s found its way to me!

Alison’s energetic and passionate nature reflects across her figurative, landscape and floral works. The artwork varies from highly detailed to loose and instinctive. A passion for life drawing inspires endless exploration into the nuances of the human figure. Captivated by mark making, Alison creates drawings and paintings for exhibition, private sale and commission.
