Alice Browne (UK, 1986) is a British artist based in London who completed her MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art, London in 2016 and her BA in Painting at Wimbledon College of Art, London in 2009. Underlying her work is a notion that physical experiences take place in collaboration with a network of secondary and imaginative sources resulting in an intoxicating, partly fictional, reality. Drawing on an expanse of influences and materials, Browne’s paintings describe obscure imaginative spaces, which simultaneously appear to adhere to the rules of gravity and perspective whilst outwardly ignoring them.
A completely new, and very pre-planned way of working, are her series of floor pieces called ‘The Shape of Things to Come’ which is named after H.G. Wells sci-fi book of predictions for the future, written in 1933. Scattered around the floor, though part of a cleromancy ritual, Browne is activating the floor space at Unseen with something that adds a different visual language to her paintings.
