Alice Jacobs graduated from Glasgow School of Art with BA in Fine Art: Sculpture and Environmental Art in 2012. She creates mesmerizing installations, changing perception of space and constructing new environments using light. She works with spatial transformations, altering surrounding architecture, objects and atmosphere.
Alice’s artworks convey important religious and philosophical questions. Her project “the body of light” relates specifically to Buddhist meditations, yet connecting to other religions through the idea of “inner light”. This sculpture, made of light and reflective qualities of water, is an attempt to materialize inner intangible light into a visible presence.
“Separated from any image, natural light or gauge of the actual depth or length of the space, the audience is left looking at something that is there, yet without any perception of what it is that they are looking at. Something, but almost nothing at all.”
This artwork resonates with everyone on different levels. The purity of the message is so powerful, it almost pulls you in a meditative state. It connects with the deeper levels of consciousness, urging the viewer to look within himself.
Her past exhibitions include yours is a body light, The Beresford Gallery; The Art of Tea, Harry Barnes Building and RSA New Contemporaries 2013.
Alice is also a co-founder of Flux Laser Studio, along with fellow GSA graduate, Philip Longstaff.
