Working as a visual artist, Alison Percy is inspired by natural forms – capturing the land, the figure and the flower has become an obsession. Percy’s energetic and passionate nature reflects in her continued fascination in the balance and sensitivity of fluid line while making her mark.
The layering of contemplative, gentle and meditative actioned marks reflects this passion and was the catalyst for quietude in place and space. This body of work is a series of landscape, figurative and floral paintings on linen, cotton canvas, Japanese paper and yupo using acrylic paint, ink and black carbon – created in the studio and from the live model.
The use of intuitive calligraphic fluid line in my work reflects an honest connection through the artist and onto the surfaces of natural fibre. Percy’s fascination with Japanese calligraphy art is evident in her work, whilst recognising traditional painting techniques the works maintain a progressively contemporary style.
