Born in Paris in 1989, Alice Gauthier lives and works in Gentilly. She graduated in 2014 from the Royal College of Art, Fine Art section, in London, after receiving the jury's congratulations for her DNAP from the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg in 2012.

Exploring drawing in all its forms, Alice Gauthier continued her studies in lithography and the artist's book at the Tamarind Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 2015. In recent years, her work has been shown in exhibitions in Paris, London (UK), Liverpool (UK) and Vienna (Austria). In 2015 she was selected for the Salon Jeune Création and for Bloomberg New Contemporaries at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London (UK). In 2015 she was awarded the Prix du Perfectionnement aux Métiers d'Art by the City of Paris, which provided her with the opportunity to train with lithographer Michael Woolworth for a year and a half. Following this experience, she installed a lithographic press in her studio and now works with engraving as a medium in its own right, in the same way as painting and drawing.

Alice Gauthier deploys her practice through three media: drawing, lithography and painting, seeking to make the viewer feel the primordial, indissoluble link that binds them to the Universe. She is irrevocably drawn to where it all began (water, earth, air). She creates poetic, dreamlike landscapes and worlds through the fusion of different liquids (gouache, ink, watercolor, etc.), which fuse and crystallize on paper, creating fascinating material effects.

In 2017, Alice Gauthier met the director of the ADIAF, Gilles Fuchs, who decided to support her and allowed her to exhibit her drawings at the Galerie Premier Regard in Paris. In 2019 and 2020, her drawings were shown at the DDessin exhibition in Paris. In 2021 and 2022, she had two solo exhibitions at the Sabine Bayasli Gallery (Paris) and the Atelier Bergère (Paris). During these two years she also took part in several group exhibitions at the Tajan Gallery (Paris), Espace à Vendre (Nice), the Ariane CY Gallery (Paris), and the National Museum of Seoul University (South Korea).

In autumn 2022, she was selected by Cultur Foundry to take part in the group exhibition Le Rêve du Scaphandre curated by Elora Weill-Engerer, an exhibition included in the VIP program of the first edition of Paris + by Art Basel.

In early 2023, the 21Contemporary gallery (Nice) devoted a solo show to her entitled Ce que veulent les vagues, as well as the group show Passion Simple at the Strouk Galerie (Paris). In April 2023, a solo exhibition entitled L'épaisseur de l’ombre was held at the Maison des Arts de Châtillon, curated by Jean-Marc Dimanche. In summer 2023, we presented her drawings at the Paréidolie fair (Marseille) and at the Drawing Now Art Fair (Paris) in March 2024. Recently, a solo show entitled Poussières vivantes was dedicated to her work at Conscious (Paris), from March 12 to April 27, 2024.

Her work is currently on view at the gallery as part of the group show À Fleur de paume, un regard sur la miniature dans l'art contemporain [A look at miniature in contemporary art] curated by Thomas Fort, until July 6, 2024.

A solo exhibition will be held at the gallery in spring 2025.

Alice Gauthier will also take part in a group show on the theme of intuition at the Fondation EDF in March 2025, curated by Samantha Barroero and the scientific curator Gérald Bronner.

The artist is also a musician, playing clarinet and bass clarinet with the music group Rob Miles & les Clés Anglaises.

Alice Gauthier is represented by our gallery.
