"unapologetic messaging; from a fragile, porcelain-like vagina to more whimsical, like her pregnant Superwoman on a mission.- Hi Fructose

Symbolic, Surreal, Childhood, Ironic, Troubles, Women Experiences

Alice Wellinger's work appear to be very personal as she approaches topics that are based on daily troubles and childhood memories in surrealist irony. Although they appear to be personal stories from her own experiences, there's a sense of relatability. Working in acrylics, Alice creates stunning 2D paintings that are thought provocative. You can see a relation with religion, femininity, mental health, and perhaps loss.
