Alice Blackley – Thinking About Making Art And Making Art About Thinking (Mindfulness in Painting)

Historically, the shape of a circle represents eternity. For Melbourne based artist Alice Blackley it represents wholeness. “I use the circle as my symbol for an empty mind whilst meditating. I write the word ‘focus’ inside the circle as a form of mantra.”

The Disquiet Up There is a negotiation of the artist’s own internal dialogue. It is an attempt to express the self-analysis and conflicts that are played out daily in her head. The figures depicted embody this discourse, as they duplicate, merge, emerge from and hide within themselves.
