Our Sculptors

Alice Cunningham MRSS

Alice Cunningham has a diverse practice and the ability to sensitively work in many mediums. Cunningham's artwork is led by a concept and she works in whichever material best suits the idea. She is interested in "The tension of a human in our environment-the vitality and precariousness of it and the fact it is forever changing"

“I believe that art has the power to provoke positive social change or awaken a shift in an audiences perception. This assertion drives my practice.

Through an understanding of materiality and form I feel you are able to evoke a pure individual perception on a very base, instinctive level. This is a massive intent in my work, to try and speak through materials. As is the simple desire to produce a question, new thought or way of relating to materials in the viewer.
A lot of my work has dealt with highlighting basic natural process as a mirror to the cogs of our existence and discuss the artificial complexities of our modern ways of living and constructed environment.”

Cunningham currently lives and works in Bristol. She has exhibited all over the UK and worked with artists in Spain, Mexico, Italy, France and Zambia. She was elected last year to be on the council of the Royal British Sculpture Society and has been a member since her bursary in 2007.
