Earthy, warm hues. Layered, rough, grainy texture. Metallic shine. Full and detailed, yet peaceful. Never still. Seeking beauty in the messiness. Calm within energy.

RED SOIL is a small body of works by Alina Shupikov deeply inspired by the rough beauty of Australian nature. By crumbling, lushly coloured rocks that emerged from the moments ago on the time of the Earth. By wind stricken, moss covered rocks deep in the country.
Slowly, thoughtfully created over the course of a year & bonded together by materials and colors, these works can be viewed as a singular body of work - or in their own right.
All paintings are framed in beautiful natural leather, that will develop a unique patina over time. Ocean sand collected at Cape Schanck and other beaches on Victorian coastline has been added to the oil paints, to symbolically bring a grain of nature into the paintings.
