ALICEANDERSON

With her long red hair, artist Alice Anderson is instantly recognizable to contemporary art fanatics. Since 1999, she has been working on an ever evolving piece which centers around her own experiences as a child. Anderson often uses wax dolls and puppets to reinvent her childhood through the distortion of her own memories. She uses mediums such as films, blood drawings, sculpture and installations. One of my favorites is an installation called Rapunzel which features miles and miles of red hair mimicking the artists mane flowing throughout a room. More recently, Alice had Madame Toussauds replicate a small doll of the artist which has been used as of late in a number of projects.
