Excellent new works by Alice Wellinger

The recent series of artworks and editorial illustrations by Austrian based artist Alice Wellinger speak of human connection or perhaps disconnection with nature, in a search for somewhere to belong, a lasting and overwhelming wait, as well as often ironic and thoughtful observations of human behavior, feelings and emotional struggles resulting from incertitude, solitude and past experiences.

Her ongoing personal project Landscape shows a complex intersection between beliefs, relationships, bearing, faith and nature, while in the series Schwarzarbeiten she tends to focus on memory and human psychology, revealing the impact of certain aspects of life, images and situations on future actions, highlighting how they remain impregnated in the minds of her subjects.

With each fragment and detail of her powerful stories, Alice Wellinger encourages the viewer to look beyond the appearances, question and discover answers that might have been missing or ignored by now.
