Gallery 2: Alana Capetta - Based in Wollongong, Alana Cappetta’s artistic practice is primarily concerned with evoking elements of Surrealism and the Uncanny through a dedication to painting. Over the past ten years, Cappetta has experimented with a vast array of figurative characters, inspired from Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, graphic motifs and figures across popular culture. With an intricate attention to design and colour, her contorted figurative studies and landscapes – both real and imagined – take on a vibrant flavour that is both ominous and innocent.
