“Inspired by the pioneers of a Brazilian artist movement, Alice brings together colourful cutouts, sculptural forms and hazy landscapes in her vibrant collages.“
New York based artist Alice Quaresma (b. 1985, Brazil) applies lines and colourful geometric forms to her photographs, allowing a new space to open up for the imagination. Using images from her own photo archive, she continuously elaborates on ideas of displacement, memory and identity. These personal images only form the first layer of several further applications, as the artist explores a variety of materials from acrylic paint and pencil to texturised paper and tape. The resulting photographs are sensorial and playful, pushing beyond the perceived flat surface boundaries of the medium.
