- About -

Alice Gur-Arie is an award nominated, London based artist whose limited edition, contemporary, mixed media images have been auctioned at Christie's and exhibited at the Embassy of Iceland, London. Her artwork is held in art collections in the UK, US, Israel, Germany and Canada. She has delivered numerous commissions in the UK and the US. 
Describing herself as an interpreter who "wants to engage both head and heart," she takes photographs around the world and repaints them digitally by hand into contemporary fine art images. She is completely self taught. The concept of "seeing" is at the heart of her practice. Combining photography with digital painting, she invites the viewer to replace the window through which they see the world, with a lens that interprets the world into something that is at once familiar and foreign. Inspired by the natural world, landscapes, seascapes, wildlife and images of nature dominate her portfolio, ranging in style from bold saturated abstracts to soft, textured tones. Awards and recognition include: Secret Art Prize, Top 10 Artworks, Bridgeman Images Studio Award, Aesthetica Art Prize, Terry O'Neill Tag Photography Award, Royal Ontario Museum. Alice is represented by a number of galleries in the UK, and Bridgeman Images around the world.
