Lives and works in Sydney

portrait

Tinggal dan bekerja Sydney, Alice Couttoupes lulus dari College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales sebagai sarjana seni rupa pada tahun 2013. Utamanya bekerja dengan medium keramik, Couttoupes meninjau batasan-batasan capaian dan perupaan dalam bahan lempung dan keramik sendiri. Dalam perhatian khusus terhadap objek-objek organik—terutama dunia tanaman—gambaran dalam karya-karya Couttoupes menemukan arah pada penjelajahan seputar botani era kolonial, dan lingkup sosio-politik serta persoalan lingkungan, sebagai dampak yang menyertainya. Dalam ketertarikan lebih lanjut terhadap konteks yang mengiringi ingatan nasional, sejarah, dan identitas di Australia, gagasan-gagasan yang hadir dalam karyanya berjajar dengan bagaimana bahasa dan simbol beroperasi membentuk dan mengikat kelompok-kelompok dalam masyarakat

Education :2009-2013 Combined Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours (First Class), College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales

She a Sydney based artist working primarily in ceramics. Drawn to the physicality of working with clay, her practice requires constant experimentation as her test the limits of the material. Fascinated by the natural – particularly botanical- world, the subject of her work is an exploration of the processes of colonial botany and the consequential enduring socio-political and environmental implications. She interested in ideas surrounding national memory, history and identity within the Australian context, and how language and symbols work to shape and bond groups within societies.
