Alice Irwin

Alice Irwin is an award-winning artist who graduated from the RCA in 2018. She has recently exhibited at Towner Gallery, Bankside Gallery, Flowers Gallery, Sid Motion Gallery and East of Elsewhere in Berlin, and had a solo show at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in 2018, The Piece Hall, Halifax in 2020 and the Tremenheere Sculpture Garden in 2021. Her sculptures are currently being exhibited in Canterbury at The Beaney, which was commissioned by Sky Arts.

Irwin aims to convey the innocence we possess as children but also to express the message of human identity; she wants some aspects of her work to be playful, naïve and comical while others are more thought-provoking. Her work offers contrasts: some parts are tactile; others create kinetic experiences in the mind. These contrasts are designed to stimulate different kinds of memory.
