About The Event
Alana Jung grew up on the north shore of Lake Superior in Thunder Bay, ON. She completed two years of study towards a BFA in Visual Arts before moving to Victoria on Vancouver Island to pursue a BSc in Biology. Both academic pursuits were motivated by a love for the natural world, and a desire to explore the magic and mystery of wild places. Alana works locally in wildlife and environmental monitoring and is currently completed a MSc in Environment and Management with Royal Roads University. In her free-time, Alana enjoys painting, practicing yoga and exploring the mountains around her home in Golden, BC with family, friends and her two year old son.
Ecology is the scientific study of interrelationships between organisms (including humans) to one another and to their environment. It seeks to understand the vital connections between plants and animals and the world around them. This body of work is a visual interpretation of ecology. Rather than a scientific perspective, this is a study of living things and their relationship to their environment through the observation and expression of light, form, colour and feeling.
All works in this exhibit are studies of photographs that were taken by the artist in environments that moved her. The reference images and her relationship with the environment is expressed through line drawing, watercolour and acrylic paint. She conveys the feeling of the place by applying line and paint with visible brush-stoke, freedom of colour, and sometimes adventuresome scale.
AGOG is pleased to welcome Alana for her first exhibit in our gallery.
