After gaining a BA in Fine Art at the University of Leeds in 2010 Alice Neave settled in London. Based at Wimbledon Art Studio’s in South West London, "I work to create bold explorations in movement, colour and texture. Working in oil, acrylic, ink, pastel and charcoal I consider myself 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 "I believe the medium itself has become the main protagonist of my work. These ‘portraits of paint, charcoal and ink’ 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 I put onto my canvas/paper/ board that remains my constant muse and takes superior precedence in my artistic process."
