“It begins the same way: A dive onto a blank page with a feeling and color. Each piece is like stepping onto a path that is at once familiar and mysterious; I may feel a little disoriented by unexpected details that surface along the way, but never lost. The course demands my full awareness, and yet, is out-of-body. This duality yokes a refreshed confidence and exhilaration as I make my way out.” — Alaina Sullivan

About the Artist

File 82720

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 a controlled chaos: carefully placed watercolor weaves through white space with distinct, fluid energy that prioritize gesture over composition. Sullivan lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
