Sandra Allain Art

Artist Statement: 
My paintings are original creations inspired by today's global surroundings and interactions. I use imagery in my collages, paintings and poems through the mix of textures, movement, words and emotions. When I paint I love versatility and use mixed media to enhance texture and flow. I combine ink, graphite, acrylic and random objects found in nature, as well as recycled materials for my collages. I am always on the search for innovative ideas; I enjoy improvising and exploring new materials and tools. Each piece of art is finished in one sitting. With my paintings I seek a connection. To provoke thought and a sensorial experience for those that view my art through their own eyes and reflection. Through my art, life is a poem.
Bio / Description: 

Sandra Allain was born in Bogota, Colombia and moved to the U.S. (Urbana-Champaign) in August 2013, where she lives with her family.

She creates abstract paintings and collages, and also writes poetry inspired by words, reflections and the imbalance of society. She has worked with pastels, watercolor, ceramic, porcelain and acrylic at different stages in her life, experience that has influenced her preferred techniques. Her medium of choice is acrylic. The use of bronze and gold on most of her paintings gives warmth to her pieces and an increased contrast between highlights and shadows, a glow which characterizes her work and personality. www.sandraallain.com
