Alice Alva is a multi-disciplinary visual artist and designer based in Te-Whanganui-a-Tara, Wellington, New Zealand, who works across drawing and illustration, embroidery and textiles, painting and graphic design.
Her work is informed by an interest in patterns, ornamentation, architecture and craft-based processes.
Alva has exhibited her work across Australia and New Zealand, including Toi Poneke, RM Gallery, Never Projects Space and Dunedin Public Art Gallery’s Rear Window Project. She was also a finalist in the 27th Annual Wallace Art Prize and the Parkin Drawing Prize 2018.
‘A means to an end’ is an exploration of the relationships we foster with textile objects. These pieces are informed by connection, memory, love and loss - and how cloth can act as a threshold between our inner and outer worlds.
