Alicja Gear | Artist
Currently working from her studio in Pukerua Bay, a coastal village just north of Wellington, New Zealand. Alicja is expressive with her work using colour and gestural marks to build on the emotional qualities she feels within these landscapes. The combination of large gestural marks and bold use of colour leads you on a journey into the landscape whilst still exploring the nature of the medium. Alicja has experimented with different mediums but is always drawn back to working with oil saying “I like the way oils behave, it suits my painting style and I like the way it holds its colour”.
She has studied informally in London and New Zealand. You will find her work exhibited with Exhibitions Gallery of Fine Art in Wellington and with ArtSelect Gallery in Newmarket, Auckland.
