Alice Bray's practice appropriates symbolism drawn from visual tools used for esoteric teaching, such as Rudolf Steiner’s chalkboards and Masonic tracing boards. Her paintings are a result of social and educational hermetic indoctrination masked by the free-spirited guise of Steiner’s philosophy. A murky dream of colours bubble to the surface of her paintings, blurring and softening darker undercurrents of the symbolism woven into her own serpentine compositions.
