Amelia Alcock-White is an artist who creates very expressive oil on canvas paintings. Alcock-White originally hails from Ladysmith, British Columbia, Canada. I actually don’t know how to swim. I never learned as a little Konahrtist…

“Art’s mission is beyond being decorative or merely pleasing; it has potential to awaken, arouse; provoke thought and discussion. My paintings are inspired by life’s harmonies and contradictions. The emotions are personal but the subject matter is universal…

An artist is a conversationalist, a story teller, a communicator. Art is a medium for the spirit that allows the free expression of passion, joy, sorrow, fear, grief, love. In my paintings I attempt to transcend the limitations of self and the illusions of the three-dimensional world in order to depict a universal, archetypal, objective reality. In short, it is the magic of reducing feelings to a two-dimensional surface of color, shape and light.

I’m fascinated with things that cannot be understood but perhaps only appreciated. Mine is the imagery of a heart swollen or broken by romance. Is it a sacrilege to hang things so personal on a wall? Does it depict something so private as to be embarrassing? Does it conjure intense feelings? If so, perhaps it has validity. It seems to me the journey of self-discovery is made even more valuable by sharing it with others.”
