Alice Lancaster paints cropped abstractions that speculate on the relationships between bodies and objects. Their titles are infused with a quick humour — impulsive and unapologetic. These collaged works reveal something of Lancaster’s process; a restless piecing together of elements, of overlapping textures and roughly figured space. The works resist perspective, instead offering multiple focal points and ambiguous horizons. The result is a field of shapes, colors and lines that nudge, mobilised, against one another.
