ARTIST INFO

About 

Alice Mahoney is a multidisciplinary artist using sculpture, painting, print, film and sound to explore forms, colour, material, and surface, interrogating the relationships between things, exploring space both architecturally and topographically and the interconnectedness of objects, people and places to create fragmented narratives both real and fictional. 
 
Having come from an art conservation background, Alice is interested in disrupting ideas around correct methodologies and material processes and enjoys using unconventional and experimental materials, re-using waste or by-products, questioning ideas around value and permanence within objects and places. 
 
Alice works as a facilitator with both neurodivergent & neurotypical artists, including facilitating a BBC commission in 2020 and most recently working as an artist-educator on The Newlyn & the Exchange Gallery’s two year Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s Teacher Development Funded project to deliver Think, Talk, Make Art, an ambitious programme of professional development and learning for primary school teachers, helping them to harness the full potential of art across their curriculum. 
 
Additionally, Alice has curated and run artist-led spaces, talks, screenings, and workshops, including an artist residency programme at CMR Project Space in Redruth (2018-ongoing) and Project Space, Berlin (2003-2005). Recent funded events she has led include those related to film, photography, publishing and sound. She also founded and co-organized the Inland Art Festival, Redruth (2014 and 2016). Alice plays keyboards in the band Disco Rococo.
