Alice Spier’s art is designed to tell a story through the painting, with the intention of capturing the authentic form of the female spirit, with all its complex narratives.

About

Presented in colourful otherworldly landscapes, her pieces bend on the side of Pop-surrealism genre, blurring the lines between dream and nightmare. Each work of art introduces a fairy tale designed to explore the character's vulnerabilities, growth and ability to overcome through poetic visuals. 

Many of the themes in Alice’s pieces revolve around a choice or consequence the character has to make in her story. This narrative of art gives each piece it’s own unique atmosphere, from the quiet moments captured in her new ‘Fragments’ painting that depicts the ambience of daily life in the comfort and privacy we experience in our own space, to the more disturbing imagery encountered in pieces such as ‘Day-Blind Stars’ and ‘Exoskeleton’ that embody various mental states we strive to conquer. Alice’s works, each in their own way, introduce a fairy tale that explores the characters vulnerabilities, growth, and ability to overcome, much as the female spirit is indoctrinated in the minds of viewers in art and media today.

This strength achieved in the fictional world is what pushes Alice’s work to effect both the audience and herself in the real one, becoming a force that pours the paint across the canvas.
