Alice Irwin


Alice Irwin is an award-winning RCA student, who recently completed a project-based residency at the Griffin Gallery, London

to experiment with new materials. She won the Contemporary Art Trust Prize 2017 for a series of prints that explore individuality and conformity. In summer 2017 she exhibited in 'Mono' at the Flowers Gallery.  One of her next projects is a show at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Alice Irwin works in layers as a printer, and much of her painting and sculpture is created from a printer’s perspective.

She is interested in pushing the craft and ‘handmade’ quality of her work into the digital world.

Irwin aims to convey the innocence we possess as children but also to express the message of human identity; she wants some aspects of her work to be playful, naïve and comical while others are more thought-provoking. Her work offers contrasts: some parts are tactile; others create kinetic experiences in the mind. These contrasts are designed to stimulate different kinds of memory.
