Alice Watkins (b.1996) paints from found imagery from the mid - to late twentieth century. By concentrating on dated imagery with a retrospective aesthetic and content, her work is inherently and knowingly nostalgic. Watkins relies on a series of intuitive decisions: lines and shapes are defined, buried and then rediscovered, so that the final image bears the visible history of the evolution of shapes and illusory spaces beneath.
