Exploring impermanence through light and movement.
Alanna Peters’ work explores concepts of impermanence through the use of light and movement. Her paintings use the juxtaposition of detailed realism of the figure against the abstraction of the setting. She captures weightlessness and reflection through transparency. Her work is predominantly figurative oil painting on wood panel. She has a desire to connect with the viewer on an intimate level in order to share in a dialogue of emotions and human experience.
Alanna was born in Ottawa and currently lives in Toronto. She earned an Honours BA for Fine Arts from McMaster University (2001) and a BEd for Arts Based Learning from Queen's University (2005).
A recognized artist, her work is found in private and public collections in Canada, the United States, France, Germany and Uganda.
Alanna now lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
