    Felicia aroney

    Felicia Aroney is Western Australian born, now living and working in Sydney as a leading contemporary artist. Felicia draws inspiration from her European heritage, channeling the distressed and peeled painted facades of classical architecture. Working with oils and acrylics, her distinctive abstracted floral works utilise a highly sculptural mark-making process. Using a palette knife to layer and shape the paint until it stands relief from the canvas. Felicia's love of her Australian environment is her choice of exploration.

    Felicia paintings evoke a sense of history and antiquity mixed with all things Australian. A wonderful synergy of her European heritage and Australian background.

    “As a child I recall the tactile nature of the surfaces in Europe. Both the uneven pebbled ground, and roughly rendered walls lead my imagination to a gate way to the past. Falling in love with the imperfections and embracing the spontaneity of ancient architecture and town planning have influenced my technique. Using a palette knife I create similar textures, layering paint, never striving for perfection nor overthinking my application, but rather feeling and trusting the process. Together with my love for both my European influences and my love for Australia's flora, particularly my favourite flower, the hydrangea, I breathe life into my work”
