ALICE DAVIES practice focuses heavily on exploiting the limitations of clay. Through elevating clumsy disturbances within her process it encourages a focus on bodily expression and experiences embedded in the material. This element of chance within my work keeps it alive, as it grows into its own logic. Alice works instinctively by recording a trace of that present moment, through a visual log of each gesture made on that day. Her work defies meaning as it embraces a becoming outside of order, language and male representational systems. This sensory spontaneity involved in the process welcomes space for a mode of my own individual female expression. She use themes of hybridity between vessel, human and animal deviating from the natural western order that advocates categories and binaries. Alice’s work is an intimate engagement between material and body.
