Alison Binks: Time and Tide - Art Collector

Alison Binks, Night Watch, 2012. Oil on canvas. 112 x 112cm

Time and Tide is an exhibition of new works by Alison Binks. In this latest series Binks continues to create works that reflect the artist’s intrigue with the transient nature of water as well as the timeless affinity that people have to the sea or rivers.

Binks’ sublime paintings allow the viewer to enter the meditative state that occurs in watching a wave or stream of water constantly move and change, break and repair, stay still and reflect a clarity, to only then have that swept away by the latest movement of this elemental force.

Through intentional abstraction of the subject and her technique of creating works through the application of layer upon layer of oil paint with a palette knife, Binks is able to make subtle changes of colour and tone that give depth to the perspective she is depicting as well as hinting at how much exists in the layers below the water’s surface.
