ALISON APLIN ART
Alison is a multi-award winning landscape designer, so design is in her blood. She has come to the art world as a mature artist, but instead of painting gardens, Alison uses her design skills to paint dynamic abstract art. Her work is bold and colourful, whereas her garden designs, receiving awards for sustainable landscapes, are more subdued. But both design forms use texture as a primary factor within the design.
Contemporary Still Life is another feature of Alison's work, a style that she thoroughly enjoys creating. There is a zeal to be seen in all of her work that demonstrates her passion for painting. Many pieces are large and most are acrylic with oil - mixed media. Many regard Alison as an eccentric, but it is this eccentricity that makes all of Alison's art and garden designs stand apart.
Alison has a gallery cum studio within her award winning, Ecotourism and ATAP tourism attraction called Timandra Garden by the Sea. This can be found at www.timandrabythesea.com.au. This garden, with the Alison Aplin Art gallery, can be found between Port Fairy and Portland, a beautiful part of Victoria. Alison's artwork can be seen at www.alisonaplinart.com.au. Timandra Garden is a premium tourism destination within the SW Victoria region, receiving such accolades as 'outstanding' and 'more of a botanic garden than a botanic garden'. It is a haven for birds and koalas within a 1 acre plus space. The studio within is totally rustic, in keeping with the Nature Based Eco experience. It is open by appointment with Alison at 0418 825 625. All enquiries are welcome.
Because of the far regional aspect, Alison has found exhibiting her work difficult. There is not the population that appreciates absolute abstract art, that large regional or city centres have. She has exhibited locally in small destinations, selling pieces with most of these openings. The most recent has been a 3 month exhibition at the new Royal Adelaide Hospital where Alison was invited to display her work in the Centre for Creative Health in the hospital in 2018. This was well received by all who viewed her work with 3 pieces sold.
Alison is a member of Regional Arts Victoria and the SW Arts Atlas. Both display her work. As with her 25 year gardening business, Timandra Design and Landscapin, that has won numerous awards in 2 states and has industry associations, Alison also runs her art business professionally too. She is a highly ethical person, running all 3 business with the same level of integrity. Clients can be assured of a very high standard. Testimonials attest to this.
For any enquiries about Alison's art you can either visit the website, visit Timandra Garden by the Sea after organising an appointment to view the works, or call Alison on 0418 825 625. She is a warm and friendly person, and all enquires are welcome.
