Alice Boyle “COMING ALIVE”

In Association with Linlithgow Burgh Halls; Alice Boyle Presents ‘COMING ALIVE’.

Go with your feelings – and embrace the sheer joy of these works – Giles Sutherland – The Times – 2017

Expect to be challenged, emotionally touched and frequently amused – Vivien Devlin – ArtMag – 2017

I’m sure this vivacious and engaging woman will continue to produce more evocative collections – Phyllis McLeish – Ayrshire Magazine 2016

Coming Alive is a new body of work by Edinburgh-based artist, Alice Boyle. For many years, Boyle has sketched after daily meditation, creating odd and often distorted creatures that come streaming to mind as soon as the pencil hits the paper.  In the spring of 2018 she decided to bring these characters to life, creating a unique world that is as strange as it is familiar.

Boyle’s new work has been inspired by the title of the artist’s previous exhibition, ‘Think Less, Feel More’. While her past show was a comment on the relationship between thinking and feeling and what that might look like, here, Alice has chosen to take a less complex approach, and run with an idea that felt powerful yet simple.
