Nearby artist Quia Z Atkinson likes to go with the movement, many thanks largely to her nomadic upbringing. Raised in a navy family members, she has lived in Morocco, Norway, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New York, South Carolina, Virginia, and, ultimately, Tallahassee. As a child, she embraced modify and the diverse cultures she encountered have motivated her imaginative process.
Atkinson’s artwork is an extension of her world wide track record and it expresses her wish for consistent motion. She is effective on equally canvas and wooden panel. Working with a mixture of a resin and acrylic with embellishments of glass and crystals, Atkinson’s artworks focus on fluidity.
“Once the resin and paint start out to move, I have no option but to comply with it wherever it qualified prospects me,” Atkinson explained. “Resin is a fickle creature, comprised of two factors mixed together. It requires a specified finesse with several things coming alongside one another flawlessly. The weather, heat application, and time all engage in a critical position in the last outcome.”
Her creations normally contain a a few-dimensional component with levels of translucency and depth of color supplying new surprises when seen at diverse angles and light stages. Atkinson is regularly complicated herself and enjoys experimenting with new strategies. She launched an on-line room, QZ Structure Gallery, and she’s gained recognition and accolades for her exuberant artworks.
