Towering Obstacles

Coralie Huon, 2021           

Acrylic on canvas

Size: W25 x H30 x D3.5cm

Coralie developed this series of paintings to explore the themes of permanence, adapting to change and letting go through the use of the symbols of the mountains and of the skies and sun cycles. Using the natural elements is a metaphor for the need of grounding to weather the overwhelming changes that one can face in life, the acceptance of natural cycles of letting go and starting again, of life and death.

In this painting, the graphically contrasting red lines against the red sun on the darker background emphasise the shape of the mountains, and the metaphor that behind every obstacle that we encounter, new things await us.

All the sides of the canvas are meticulously painted as a continuation of the image. It is best hung without a frame to display the unique edges which gives the painting an eye-catching 3-D dimension.

Coralie HuonArtist: Coralie Huon

Coralie Huon is a multidisciplinary artist and illustrator. Her work is inspired by nature and landscapes, highlighting the beauty of the outdoor world and the interaction of people with these places.

Coralie's art is influenced by her passion for climbing. She discovered climbing in her late twenties and her journey into the arts began after a climbing accident when she drew a graphic novel to document this experience and never stopped drawing since. This eventually led her to explore a new career after a decade of working in interior design and architecture.

Her work focuses on the exploration of our connection to nature and through it, the connection to ourselves. She uses elements of nature as a metaphor, in particular mountains, to express her own personal emotional journey as well as human relationship to the earth, to our inner beings and to others. Her illustrative style blends her precise and detailed linework with geometrical shapes, navigating between her contrasting black and white drawings to her colourful acrylic paintings to create unique graphically bold pieces.
