About the Artist
Alicia (b. 1988, Southfield, Michigan) is an artist living and working in Los Angeles, California. She received a BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art (Baltimore, MD) in 2011. She will complete her MFA at Otis College of Art and Design in the spring of 2022. Serling's work culminates in a variety of effigies from sculptural assemblages to collage-like found text drawings. Each piece in the show draws upon certain identifiable items: zip ties, matches, text, pills, ropes, wax, jars, and many more. Serling’s work takes these items and correlates them to a corresponding craft in magic to express their state of being. The works emerge with a sense of soft anguish and become both beautiful and perverse upon viewing. Through this work, she aims to leave room for associations, discussions, and ultimately a somatic conclusion in the viewer.
