Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Alanna is an artist and educator living in Midcoast Maine. She creates abstract work about trauma and human relationships; and how the effects of these are felt in our bodies. She uses abstract ribbon forms that are interrupted, or intruded upon, by external objects to explore bodily feelings like hurt, tenderness, and protection. Her work also explores how we adjust to, or conceal the wounds we receive from trauma. How do we make space in our bodies for these wounds, and our strong emotions? Her process of drawing with colored pencils on wood is disciplined and meditative. It invites the viewer to similarly slow down, and notice.
