(b. 1996, Christchurch, New Zealand)
Working predominantly with paint and conté, Alice Bray’s painting and drawing practice is influenced by cryptic symbolism, language and ritualism. The applied iconography and tonality of her work morphs into unified symbolic structures, which seek to both lure and haunt, bearing the appearance of something organic yet otherworldly, gloomy yet seductive. The revelation of the imagery demands closer inspection and speculation, creating a psychological dance between what is seen and what may lie beneath.
