About the Artist

File 82720

Brooklyn, New York-based painter Alaina Sullivan (b. 1988) paints abstract works that nod to nature and landscape. With inspiration rooted in the land, sea, and sky, her works are created with unpredictable gestural washes of watercolor that weave across her stark white surface with distinct, fluid energy. Akin to the capricious quality of nature, Alaina allows her materials to dictate her compositions in an effort to capture the rampant energy of the natural world.
