"This piece is a direct reflection on the connection between art and fashion.
Photographers are sometimes forced to pick between art or editorial style photographs when in reality, the two can merge and function cohesively. There is a want for editorial style photographs to transition into gallery exhibitions and the contemporary art world."
"There is an "ideal body" that is portrayed in most of the world. Even in figurative
drawing, most models have a slimmer physique. Unfortunately, the "ideal body" only represents a fraction of the population. It's a breath of fresh air to see a realistic portrayal of a woman's figure that others may relate to."
Alicia was invited to curate a second collection for SHOWFIELDS in February. She selected works by nine artists around the themes of human connection and the environment.
After spending most of 2020 indoors within the confines of our homes, we feel a collective longing for both nature and connection. These are two themes that are inherently a part of the artists’ works that I’ve selected for this curation. Some present the human form intertwined with or immersed in a landscape or other natural environment, while others compose images with figures alongside animals, flowers, and insects. Working in the mediums of collage and painting, these artists remind us to appreciate the profound beauty of our surroundings and of the importance of having respect for it now and in the years to come.
These works of art also act as a record and documentation of life as an artist during the pandemic. While they, like everyone else, experienced loss, grief, anxiety, frustration, and fear - like nature itself, they also went through periods of growth and renewal. For me, bringing together this collection of artists is a manifestation of the belief that 2021 will indeed allow for more opportunities to connect with the environment, ourselves, and each other. It’s a sigh of relief, or rather, a breath of fresh air.
