An Artist Studio: Amelia Alcock-White

Hyperallergic is running a terrific View from the Easel series that will satisfy anyone interested in artist studios.  Vancouver artist Amelia Alcock-White says hers “has been relegated to the dark underworld of a basement” after her second child moved into the bright, south-facing room she once used.  She says it works impressively now.

“I crank up the fan and baby monitor to some good ol’ sleeping babe rhythms,” she says. “My strategy: to find Zen anywhere and work within any available time allowance.”

Here is some of her work, from the series Water Born.Intertidal 18 x 36 inches

Matthew’s Aquarium 30 x 40 inches

Through the Looking Glass 24 x 36 inches

  1. I love the one with the little boy (Matthew’s Aquarium) 🙂 The way he is underwater and simultaneously puts his hands on the glass. His body, his fingers and his lovely cheeks which are filled with air! Just perfect!
    Greetings! 🙂

    P/S: Sorry about any grammatical errors 😦
    P/S 2: in greek magikifoni (μαγική φωνή) means ”magic voice” !! 😉
