Alicia Gibson’s work is diaristic, visceral, and engaged with contemporary feminism. Often using satire to process serious matters, her paintings, watercolors, and collages draw the viewer into Gibson’s personal struggles to generate empathy. Text is a common occurrence in Gibson’s work — takeaways from conversations, notes to self, that are fragmented and summarized.
