The interpretive nature of abstraction means that each and every viewer is taken on a unique journey with the piece, and Alison Mooney accomplishes exactly this. The artist captures light in its truest sense: bold with a sheer transparency. Further, the colours illustrated here allude to a divine energy that fits perfectly with the subject matter of this piece.

KAB Gallery, Terrigal

An impressive artwork which is sure to sit centre stage within any interior. The alluring, warm palette conveys an irresistible sense of joy and happiness. For me, abstract art brings endless enjoyment; I cannot help but imagine various narratives and contemplate the range of moods evoked by the composition. This piece, bursting with warm aesthetic beauty and appropriately titled Sun Showers, is reminiscent of the blue skies and sunny warmth of a beautiful spring day. Considering its size, it would look best as the single feature on a wall with high ceilings, or centrally positioned in an entrance or hallway. This arrangement would allow the piece to be displayed with the adequate distance and height for the viewer to truly take in all of its charms.

Sydney Road Gallery, Seaforth

This cleverly constructed abstract painting presents a contemporary swirl of a sun shower rainbow. There is a calmness and room for self-reflection elicited through light refraction and broad sweeps of colour. It’s nice to see such confident and uninterrupted curves. This painting would be wonderful in a minimalist white space –perhaps a space for meditation.
