The magnificent A PORTÉE DE MAINS (“Fingertips”) by Alice Laverty shows off the artist at her finest and most playful, focusing on the form and features of the human hand and its fingertips.
About the Artist. Alice, born in 1983, lives and creates in Paris. A graduate of the school of art and drawing, Emile Cohl in Lyon, she moved in 2013, in her first workshop. The same year, the house Dominique Stal at Drouot sold her first paintings and she received her official listing.
Playing on false classicism, Alice seeks to gently strike the imagination, painting characters grappling with their emotions. Her use of color represents various human emotions. Red, representing blood and heat, for example. Her work is also replete with dual representation – In the flesh: the hardness of the blade immersed in the smoothness of the color of the oil. In the spirit: the background form of contrasts, subjects and actions, explicit and suggested.
She tries to say “emotion” with minimal graphics means. The desired balance point is none other than the time the witness when he feels an emotion, and the artist believes that oil is the perfect substitute for it to embody humanity: sensual, inscrutable, brilliant.
In 2014, Alice participated in group exhibitions in Paris and Neuilly-sur-Seine (92). Her next exhibition will be held in June at the “Fabrica del Vapore” in Milan where she will present twenty small canvases, medium and large format. Visit Alice at www.alice-artworks.com.
