Alice Gur-Arie will talk about her mixed media practice and the works in the exhibition Spring and Other Reasons.

About

Alice is a self taught artist who began her career as a conceptual copywriter, graphic designer, and creative director, eventually responsible for positioning global brands, and developing and executing their marketing strategies. Several years ago she returned to her creative roots, producing work that "sits in the sweet spot where painting and photography converge.”

The concept of "seeing" is at the heart of Alice's practice. Combining her own photography with digital painting, she invites the viewer to replace the window through which they see the world, with a lens that interprets visual experience into something that is at once familiar and foreign. Inspired by the natural world, landscape, seascape and wildlife images from around the world dominate her portfolio, ranging in style from bold saturated abstracts to soft, textured tones.

The images in this exhibition come from Portugal, France, Germany, Israel, Italy and Iceland.
