Elma Alcock @ Fine Arts Society

2 March 2017 - 24 March 2017

Elma Alcock’s semi-representational works take everyday objects as their subjects; a window frame, an egg or a glass offer a point of departure into a quiet and contemplative inner world. Delicately balancing between representation and abstraction, the disarming simplicity and stripped-back aesthetic of Alcock’s canvases connect the viewer to a deeper silence and stillness within her work.
Alcock creates texture by applying paint in multiple thin layers to her canvases, building a luminous surface of colour. The effect is to hold the viewer’s gaze and attention, lingering on the subtle tonal shifts of colour and variations of light and shade. Alcock’s perfectly balanced compositions are imbued with emotional weight and implied meaning.
