Local artist Alix Korte is continually inspired by the ruggedly beautiful landscape of Western Australia. She experiments loosely with impression to create semi-realistic landscapes, filled with exaggerated colour to create energy and impact. Born on the coast in Cape Town, the sea is a favourite subject with the vibrancy and fludity of water a constant source of fascination. A love of animals is evident in her many portrayals of working dogs and farm animals. Using oil paint, her work features bold brush strokes, thin glazes and thick impasto paint on canvas, clear primed linen and wood.
