Alice Quaresma

Alice has been experimenting with materials that allow her photographs to be sensorial and playful, pushing the boundaries of photography as a flat surface. She uses acrylic paint, paper, tape and pencil over photographic prints to achieve a dimensional sensation through layering and contrasting texture and color. While pushing the confines of photography, she continues to explore the physical aspects of photo-making, as she uses images from her personal photo archive to elaborate on ideas of displacement and identity. She uses her own life experience as an individual living in a foreign country and the difficulty of finding a personal identity as a major source of inspiration. “I am letting subjective decisions exist in my work the same way we deal with the unexpected in life," explains Quaresma. "Lately, I have been calling my artwork 'photo-objects'. With these, I am bringing volume, texture and the idea of time as a mutated condition to the work."
