'To the Lighthouse' by Aliki Yiorkas (oil on canvas 25cm x 20cm]
Aliki Yiorkas is a Sydney based artist who completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the National Art School in 2020. Expressive and intuitive in approach, Aliki’s works are primarily figurative, drawing on personal significance to explore a narrative or an experience. Whilst drawing is the foundation of her work, she also enjoys printmaking, painting and making artist’s books.
'I am supporting Honour Her'....
I went out to the Macquarie Lighthouse at Vaucluse on a bright, sunny day earlier this year. I looked up in awe at the towering lighthouse while I painted en plein air. The lighthouse for me symbolises spiritual strength and emotional guidance, standing stoically above a constantly moving sea. I honour and dedicate To the Lighthouse to women impacted with gynaecological cancer, for its sense of hope, and its towering strength and guidance in times of turbulence.
