Alecca Adarna (b.1996) is a self-taught abstract and resin artist who lives in Manila, Philippines. She states, “My art is a colorful web where colors and cells interact to keep the viewer in a playful atmosphere of exploration and imagination.” Adarna reveals an alluring perception of space and depth through a psychedelic interplay of organic shapes that suggest earth, water, and sky. The forms emerge, coalesce, overlap, and release with effortless grace. They embody the dynamic forces of nature and our connection to its miraculous energy and diversity.
I was inspired by the States of Cadence, therefore my subject matter is coral reefs. I used materials such as acrylic, and my secret concoction of my fluid pouring medium on canvas, to capture the movement of life deep within the ocean— making my canvas dance and the paint sing. Everything is captured in the spontaneous movement of the fluid paint as it meets the canvas. There is no going back and correcting when painting with fluid paint. It captures its own image at that moment in time.
