PARTICLES+WAVES Alice Hope

“Invisible and natural forces are my medium, with a particular fascination with magnetism. My practice utilizes magnetic force both as painters use paint and sculptors use glue; yet my material is not constrained by any tradition or dialogue. Fluid in structure as well as identity, magnetism is used as subject, as the only adhering element, and as the generator of experience through its force and field.”
