To coincide with our 'Altered Landscapes' exhibition artist Aliki Braine will giving a talk about her work.
Aliki Braine -works as both an artist and lecturer. Having studied for her BFA in Fine Art at Ruskin School, Oxford University followed by an MA at The Slade School of Fine Art, Aliki went to the Courtauld Institute to do an MA in the History of Art. This grounding in both the practice and theory of art is combined in her landscapes
Aliki is interested in how a photograph can be transformed into an object and uses destructive techniques to disrupt her otherwise pastoral landscape images. Often cutting, drawing with ink or punching holes into the negative her violation of the pristine surface of the negative forces the viewer to look towards the texture of the photographic paper and opens up a new understanding of the photographic process and image as an art object.
