Introduction

Over the past decade Alice has developed her visual art practice to combine her belief in text as an artistic tool with her craft skills and her commitment to site-specific and interdisciplinary work.

Like much of her writing, Alice’s visual work is often concerned with memory, place, hidden stories and personal versus monumental history. She combines text with embroidery, found objects, photography and film, to create individual pieces but also immersive installation environments. Her work is often site-specific and participatory. She is interested in using visual creative practice to create a form of 3d illustration, to bring to life her written work in the physical world of its reader-viewers.

Alice has exhibited her work at home and abroad, including at Oxford House in Bethnal Green, London and the Carturesti Gallery in Bucharest where she won her Metroarts commission. She has a long history of small site-specific interventions as can be seen on her archived site www.andtheghostssosilver.com . Past commissioners include InTransit North Kensington Art Trail, Bristol City Council Creative Spaces – The Edwardian Cloakroom (a Dirty Confetti project) and most recently Somerset Art Works – Momentum open call for the 2015 Somerset Art Weeks, which selected her project The Car Boot Museum.
