Alane Levinsohn is a rarity. I have known this kind, intelligent, creative woman for over four years and she never ceases to amaze me with her abilities and talents. If you ever need a friend when in need, Alane is your gal. She can wield a construction tool as easy as a paintbrush. If you love the art of the masters, then the artwork styled by this award-winning petite lady will astound you. Alane Levinsohn is one of a kind. I am honored to own her art. There is no measurement of my joy and appreciation of how she brilliantly captured the heart and soul images of my deceased dogs Amy and Sugar.
“As an artist, I am constantly drawn to the grandeur and majesty of both the human form and the natural world,” said Alane. “My work is a celebration of the form – capturing the strength, power, and beauty of both the human body and the earth.
“In my landscape work, I’m drawn to both the austere, rugged beauty and raw power of the desert and the delicate beauty of the skies juxtaposed with the severity of the desert trees. Through my landscape painting I try to capture the essence of those natural wonders distilling them down to their most essential elements to create a sense of awe and wonder in the viewer. I am fascinated by the interplay of light and shadow and how it transforms a landscape into a dynamic ever-changing scene. Ultimately my goal is to transport the viewer to a different world, one where the majesty of nature is on full display and the beauty of the earth is celebrated in all its forms.
“In my figurative work, I’m drawn to the human form and its ability to convey emotion, story, and vulnerability. I explore the complexities and nuances of human experience using line, shape, and color. My art backgrounds are white to eliminate points of reference, social station and focus on the body itself as a beautiful form without regard to gender or status.
Ultimately, Alane’s work is a celebration of the human form and the reflection of human experience. Whether working with the human form or the natural world. Her aim is to create work that inspires and uplifts and reminds viewers of the incredible beauty and power that exists in the world around us.
