About Alice McMahon
My work was shown and sold at the Saatchi Gallery in London.
I am a professional visual artist specializing in symbolist and magic realist figurative drawing. I have always considered art that depicts the human face and form to be the most compelling images throughout art history. A passion for drawings of the old masters and for their use of exquisite support surfaces began early in my career and current works often incorporate the written word and influences from literature.
Roh described magic realism as a form in which “our real world re-emerges before our eyes, bathed in the clarity of a new day.” All of my figurative drawings are meant to be noble representations of individual character, and also illustrative of the best aspects of our time: bringing together a wealth of influences, and recognition of art history and myth. My goal is to create images that are of the moment, but hopefully will also remain relevant in the future.
