Alicia Savage

Alicia Savage’s artwork is an organic exploration and documentation of her present and past. Inspired by her curiosity and fueled by her imagination, she investigates significant aspects of family history and the subsequent places she finds herself within through self portraiture. Utilizing herself as the subject, she embraces literal road trips and the metaphorical journeys they evoke. Symbolic objects, uncharted backroads, homesteads of ancestors: each reveal an undiscovered vantage point to play from. Post production adds an additional layer and exposure of new landscapes. Her work echos the internal and external, the past and present, the known and unknown. Combined with elements of surrealism, her photographs translate abstract concepts and emotions. Incorporating symbolic references through objects, colors, and compositing, she shares a personal narrative to be expanded upon through the viewer’s experiences.
