Alice Boyle - 1999 - Colours the Soul
Alice would like to invite members of the Gordonstoun Association to view a new exhibition of her work. Alice left Gordonstoun in 1999 and moved to London in 2007 after gaining a Masters from Edinburgh College of Art and a BA from The University of Wales Institute, Cardiff. In March 2007, she came up with, and co-directed, the internationally acclaimed project, ‘The Graffiti Project’, at Kelburn Castle in Scotland working with Brazilian artists Os Gemeos, Nina and Nunca who prompted Alice to focus solely on her artistic practice, which she did in early 2009. Since then she has had four solo exhibitions in London, at various galleries and is about to embark on her fifth; titled Colours the Soul, at 54 The Gallery, Mayfair, London.
Colours the Soul is a completely new collection of mixed media paintings; inspired by the power of dreams, mythology and the collective unconscious. Alice uses textures, vivid colours, elemental shapes and layering techniques, aiming to stimulate the senses and to make the viewers more in tune with their psyches. Alice explores the eternal and intrinsic search for individual wholeness through the process of art and creativity, while purposely avoiding pinning herself down to a single style or a theme in order to emphasise that creativity and life are more about the journey than about the end result.
