Alice Gauthier explores organic forms through drawings : microscopic elements, bio-organisms, slices of earth and the human body. She is also inspired by the interaction of people in life, their relationships and stories, which she blends with drawings developed from scientific imagery. She creates an encyclopedic theater via the characters who meet and imerge with each other. Their bodies melt together, their ectoplasm become visible and touchable...The fluidity of ink and the graphite ends up mixing too. Her characters become actors that she directs on stage ; their auras and shadows having a priority in most of her projects. Recently Alice has been exploring the natrual bodies of the planet, the leading roles in her scenes being taken by mountains, the sea and icebergs, which stand alone, or incorporate human characteristics.

BIOGRAPHY :
Alice Gauthier was born in Paris, France in 1989. She graduated in 2014 at the Royal College of Art in Fine Art/Printmaking in London, UK, after graduating from her BA in Strasbourg, France in L'Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs with Honors Degree. Exploring drawing in many ways, she decided to develop her skills in lithography at Tamarind Institure, New Mexico, in 2014-2015. In the last few years, she has shown her work in many group exhibitions in London, Liverpool, Vienna, Las Vegas and Paris. She was selected for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries at The Institute of Contemporary Art in London, 2015. She also received the Prix du Perfectionnement aux Métiers d’Art de la Ville de Paris in 2016. In October 2017, she was put selected by Gilles Fuchs to exhibit her drawings and prints at the Premier Regard Gallery in Paris.
She lives and works in Paris today, and is represented by H Gallery which will present Alice's work in a solo show in May 2019 for two months, and also a selection of pieces at the DDessin Fair, in March 2019 in Paris.
In parallel, the artist plays the clarinet and bass clarinet as part of a band, called Rob Miles & Les Clés Anglaises. The band plays regularly and is planning to release a vinyl in early 2019.
