Introduction Predominantly influenced by her love of landscapes and brave colour combinations – (not to mention a rich tapestry of nostalgic child hood travel experiences to draw upon) -British born Ali McNabney-Stevens has quickly and notoriously become one of the most collectible emerging artists within Australia, whilst simultaneously attracting worldwide attention for her art practises. Ali’s well-trained eye for colour and composition finds her painting abstract work that celebrates both Ulster landscapes along side the everyday ordinary still lifes and Australian flora and fauna. The Ulster landscape in particular and Ali’s relationship with it evokes deep emotions and memories that sees her executing abstract expressions of the feeling and memory. It is seemingly this dualism of the important yet the simple that strikes a chord with the artist, and the admirer. Ali works with brushstrokes and layers of paint that emanate luminously from the depths of the canvas. Her complex layering of paint parallels an accumulation of ideas, thoughts and emotions collected over time
