Alicia Little a series of abstract sculptures that fluctuate between familiarity and obscurity. Little covers plastic or paper forms in coats of pastel latex paint. Her paintings lean against walls and slouch over, posturing and gesturing towards weakness or vulnerability. At times the forms reference something figural and at other times they look completely foreign. The deflated shapes are at odds with the smooth paint they are covered in, providing the work with a sense of precariousness and tension a body might experience while simply existing in space.
Little was born in 1990 in Cincinnati, OH. Using abstract shapes and colors, she is interested in forming works that occupy the space between painting and sculpture. She received a BFA from the Art Academy of Cincinnati in 2013, and is currently a graduate student in the Department of Art at Ohio State University, class of 2018. She lives and works in Columbus, OH.
