Gallery welcomes oil painter Angie Sinclair
Sunset River Gallery in Calabash, NC has recently added Wilmington, NC oil painter Angie Sinclair to its roster, artistic director Samantha Spalti has announced.
Angie Sinclair’s current body of work is all about water. According to the artist, her modern impressionist style of painting is achieved through creating different textures and forms with innovative brush strokes, which are very loose, free and dynamic.
Her inspiration originally came from watching her children swim, both playfully and competitively. She was mesmerized by the way the water seemed to mystify the body and wanted to find a way to capture the interaction of water, body and light. Sinclair’s painted canvases feature crisp blue-hued scenes of people skimming along water’s reflective surfaces. Hints of reflective colors skim across the canvas and cling closely to the figures. Sinclair attending the High School of Arts, the School of Visual Arts, and the Art Students League in New York City. Her work has been exhibited around the country and has garnered first prize in juried shows.
The artist was born in LA and moved to New York with her family, where she studied at the High School of Arts, the School of Visual Arts, and the Art Students League. Moving to Las Vegas in her twenties, she taught art and began working in oil. Today, she is a full-time artist in Wilmington, NC, still exploring connections between people, light and water.
