Alice Crawford – Printmaker, typography, and collage artist
Partially deafened at an early age, how she hears and interprets spoken language is in her art.
Communication is processed differently for her, her work giving you a perspective on the way she hears. It is a visual representation of when everything comes together for her in her aural interactions with others providing the clues are caught correctly. Or not.
She keeps it fresh with unexpected imagery with innovative printmaking using typography, collage, collagraphs, and/or other printmaking techniques to express the way she hears.
The love of nature comes from living along the Ottawa River in northern Ontario and the Assiniboine River in Winnipeg, both teeming with wildlife camouflaged in the background.
She is a graduate of two BSc degrees from the University of Manitoba and an Advanced Diploma in Graphic Design from Red River College.
Alice took part in the first Making Our Mark program at Martha Street Studio in 2013 expanding her wide range of printmaking skills.
She was honoured by Arts Culture Industries Manitoba (ACI) as Featured Member of the Month in September 2014. She has exhibited in three solo shows, and several group exhibitions. Her work can be seen at Martha Street Studio and Gallery Lacosse in Winnipeg, and in the Deaf Culture Centre in Toronto. Her art is on display across Canada and the USA.
She is the Project Director for Manitoba Cultural Society of the Deaf – Deaf Arts Manitoba and AANM is very supportive of her work.
