Alice’s work is typically described as having non-referential subject matter. Her paintings convey emotion through color interactions and trigger memories of a time and place specific to life in New York City. Her process of multi-layering creates depth and movement, fusing the act of painting with an experimentation of various materials to produce texture or it’s appearance, drawing the viewer in. Using acrylic paint and mixed media to emulate the look of a wall cracking and peeling, the outcome is work influenced by her photography of distressed spaces and surfaces. Having lived in New York City for over 20 years, these images are documentation of the ever-changing environment portraying the character and deterioration of the city, society and the self. History is revealed through this layering, which conveys the concept of how things change over time and the beauty of the forgotten.
