Alice Watkins

Alice Watkins lives and works in London and paints from found imagery from the mid - to late twentieth century. By concentrating on dated imagery with a retrospective aesthetic and content, Watkins’ work is inherently and knowingly nostalgic. Other stylistic references include turn-of-the-century figurative paintings, filmic imagery, dreams and local or contemporary vernacular. Her latest compositions are often illusory and expressive and they adopt a haptic and responsive relationship with paint.
