Original artworks by Alison Clarke for sale
Over the years I have experimented with various mediums but finally settled on the difficult but challenging medium of watercolour. I love to express bold colours but with a softness and transparency unique to watercolour. Watercolour is a risky and exciting medium to work with and I continually experiment and exaggerate to interpret and enliven the subject I am painting. My interpretation is not in the detail of the subject but to paint an impression that I hope is appealing and interesting to the viewer. The subjects I paint are varied however I am passionate about painting flowers especially poppies. Many of my poppy images featured in the Denmark Chamber of Commerce Business Directory for 2015 commemorating the centenary of Anzac.
After participating in the Southern Art & Craft Trail in 2007 I was invited to be one of the Resident Artists in a local art gallery. After the gallery closed its doors, I realised there was a need for a new gallery where I and other local artists could display and sell our work. I subsequently found a wonderful space located in the heart of town and overlooking the Denmark River. I 7subsequently opened the Riverfront Gallery in November 2011 where my artworks are permanently on display.
