About Alice Quaresma

Alice Quaresma is a New York based artist who experiments with materials that allow her photographs to be sensorial and playful, pushing the boundaries of photography as a flat surface. The artist 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, using images from her personal photo archive to elaborate on ideas of displacement and identity. Quaresma uses her own life experience as an individual living in a foreign country as a major source of inspiration.

 

STATEMENT

“Art allows me to experiment with the unknown, I am fascinated by things and places I don’t know, or have never been to. My artwork explores all the things that makes me feel vulnerable and allow me to find something new about life, society and myself.”

“My studio philosophy is just keep working, trying…experience the present, the process of making my work is the most enriching part of my day.” - Alice Quaresma
