Alison Litherland

Mixed media / Collage, Painting

Large colourful paintings in loosely painted acrylics/oils. Watery abstract landscapes

Alison Litherland is a painter working in oil and acrylics. 

Alison’s practice can be summed up as ‘put paint on canvas, see what happens’. Inspired by remote empty spaces, the sea and the sky, wild weather, distant hills, lost industrial landscapes and the whirling sea birds in flight, she aims to create a feeling of yearning for the places not quite seen. The paint is loosely applied; the send of place is shifting and uncertain.

And when access to the wild places was not possible I concentrated on urban sketches of Cambridge buildings – seeing interest in the often overlooked – rooftops and alleyways. I now have a series of mixed media paintings based on this theme.
