Alicia Rothman is a leading New York artist who has had critical acclaim in the US and whom Pepper Gallery is now delighted to launch in the UK.
Her unique paintings combine her original use of print techniques with traditional oil and other mediums to produce subtle and beautiful plays on shape and colour. Her influences include ancient wall paintings, Byzantine, Medieval and Renaissance art in addition to 20th century textiles and painting. Her subjects vary from the animal kingdom to urban scenes, clowns or dancers and are all transformed under her artmanship into delicate and dreamlike works with an often ethereal quality.
Her work is in private and public collections including, most prestigiously, in the White House collection. She has had a number of exhibitions throughout the USA, including New York, Boston and Los Angeles. We are delighted that her 2012 launch in the UK had such an immediate success with acceptance at the Royal Academy and a rapidly increasing following.
