ABOUT VANIA LAWSON
Vania is a Perth based, Australian artist with a background in design and scenic art, Vania is drawn to landscapes with distinct light and texture, the movement of all weather conditions and how that plays on our surroundings. Her works are emotional and psychological places, beautiful internal landscapes of her surrounds.
"My work speaks of things that are timeless, I feel that for most of us our oceans, skies and landscapes represents something that is comforting and timeless."
Creating layers then destroying areas as I build the work up creates a cyclical process, much like the timeless crash of ocean tides against the shore, this also adds an additional level of texture to her work.
Vania builds up multiple translucent layers of color, alternating between soft brushstrokes and large, sweeping gestures to evoke crashing waves, stormy clouds and shadowed landscapes.
Her paintings which are inspired by an inner world of instinct and spontaneity to her environment often have a luminous quality which draws the viewer into the work.
Vania's style of artwork encompasses different medias, some comprising of texture and strong opacity, others with delicate gilt leaf + translucent overlays of oil washes. Shadows, glimpses and echos of the past and of surrounding landscapes are featuring predominately in a new series of artworks.
Each of these artworks consist of multiple layers in oils often building up washes of colour in a cyclical process to produce the final image.
