The Artist - Alice Jennings
‘I convey my own actions through the shape and form of the materials I use. Growing up with a brother who has Down’s syndrome has made me question the idea of beauty and what it means.’ Her practice encompasses the physicality and visceral quality of clay, exercising a language formed through bodily gestures. The works play with the senses, connecting the viewer to the intricacies of the natural world. They are intended to be imposing yet harmonious with their surroundings, relating the viewer to the sounds and physical textures of the environment. The hidden aspects of her work should not dominate but entice and intrigue us like the many organic forms that surround and seduce us. Alice has enhanced her larger pieces with a soundscape which can be accessed with your phone via a QR code, or you can listen to it on her website. Alice Jennings is a Bristol based sculptor artist, studied at the University of the West of England and the Winner of the 2018 Ruth Tait Sculpture Prize.
