BIOGRAPHY

 

Alice Morishita is a Tokyo-born Japanese-Taiwanese artist, currently living and working in Berlin, Germany. Attending international schools and being brought up in a multicultural environment, has definitely influenced her current creative works. In her works, both eastern and western aesthetics can be recognized. She has always had strong interests in culture, rituals, myths, vintages, and antiques. Morishita's unique world is depicted through surreal images of nature and human figures. She works with a mixture of media, mainly ink, acrylic, coffee, and embroidery. Her sensitive eye for structure and detail can be seen through her pointillism techniques which appear frequently in her works. Her works also carry a narrative which creates layers and depth to the work.

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

I create surreal imagery with narratives to make sense of the world around me. I incorporate several different techniques and media in my painting, such as abstract color expressionism, detailed pointillism, texture play, and embroidery.  I weave these techniques together in search of my harmony. Harmonious balance reached through the layering of different media keeps me fascinated. I aim to unfold the complexity of our experiences or views in a visual form.

 

Pointillism appears frequently in my works. I love the sense on building up an image from one dot. I find that comprising partial intricate depiction of the image brings out its sensitivity. At the same time, I work with creating spontaneity through layers of colors. This depicts the underlying energy I hold within. 

 

Although I begin the work as a two dimensional piece, I create a three- dimensional image of what I want to express. As muh as painting being an emotional or thought-provoking experience, I want to also let there be a sensory experience to it.
