Based in Edinburgh, Scotland, Imogen Alabaster works in oils to make dreamlike paintings where layers of explosive colours, bold figures and mysterious creatures capture your imagination.
Recently she has been creating a series of self-portraits. Her appearance alters each day and with every experience. By continually studying her own image she explores how internal anxieties and past grief and joy has left its physical impression.
She has also been creating detailed portraits of friends. Everybody has hidden scars - some physical and some psychological. With every delicate brush stroke Alabaster hopes to gently express how stunning they and their 'flaws' are, both visually and spiritually.
