ALICE NEAVE

After gaining a BA in Fine Art at the University of Leeds in 2010 Alice settled in London. Based at Wimbledon Art Studios in South West London, she works to create bold explorations into movement, colour and texture.

Working in oil, acrylic, ink, pastel and charcoal, Alice considers herself a mixed media artist, bringing to the forefront visual observations of colour and configurations of the world around us.

Figurative study has played a big part in Alice's art school training as well as explorations into print and mark marking. Although hinting at flora, fauna and still life, she believes the medium itself has become the main protagonist of her work.

These ͚portraits of paint give a life to the medium as the subject; they have weight and physicality, form and shape built up with texture and viscosity, examining the relationship between the background and foreground. It is what Alice puts onto her canvas/paper/ board that remains her constant muse and takes superior precedence in her artistic process.
