Three Chairs, 2021

I am captivated by snap shots of the everyday and challenged with a ‘push and pull’ between accurately applying paint and being expressive with line.
Alice Watson (she/ her) Alice Watson is a practicing artist, living and working in the Upper Murray, on Aboriginal land belonging the Wiradjuri people. In her early career, Alice studied and practiced Graphic Design in the regional cities of Wagga Wagga and Albury in New South Wales. In 2008 she acquired her Bachelor of Education, and has since been teaching Visual Arts, Literacy and French Studies to primary and secondary stages. Visual culture has forever been at the centre of Alice’s world, both personally and professionally, though it has only been in recent years that she has had the privilege of painting in a vocational capacity. Earlier this year in April, Alice presented her first exhibition ‘Beyond the Garden Gate,’ in the sun lit stairwells of Albury’s iconic T&G building, where her studio is now based. Alice has long been an avid photographer and has described her paintings as an extension of the frame through which she considers her world. Her paintings reveal her attachment to her garden, and to the landscapes beyond it. Alice’s subjects are drawn from the everyday, such as the contents of the fruit bowl in her kitchen, or the interactions that take place between her children. Alice’s style refers to the strong tones and breaks of colour seen in Fauvism during the early 20th century in France. She will often search for ways to disregard accuracy in her paintings or create an unusual perspective. Alice is in the early stages of developing work for her next exhibition.
