Alana Barton

Visual artist, Painter

Belfast

Alana is a figurative painter based in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Staged within a created reality the artwork is based around the exploration of childhood, family relationships and the speculative relationship between what is real and what is imaginary.

The paintings deal with a hyper reality using both figurative and abstract elements that explore the use of movement and colour to convey ideas of surreal dream like states and alternative realities. Taking inspiration from cultures, the Renaissance and consciousness; primarily based on young people integrated with organic forms.
