Take me anywhere is also what I keep asking for, jumping out from any window of opportunity to discover the world and actually breath, laugh, write, eat, smile, love, Live anywhere else, holding mediocrity and routine off.

Take me anywhere is the Traveller’s mantra, their pray and hope, their romantic attraction to transit places such as airports and train stations, their backpack fetishism, their amazement in front of the new, their ability to finally enjoy the moment only while “real life” is suspended and its issues clearly postponed.

Alice travels a lot.
I follow her facebook page and she always posts new artworks realized in different towns; she is constantly vagabonding from Indonesia to New York, from Sidney to wherever her art takes her.

I’ve always imagined her traveling with a big vintage suitcase (like those I found in the middle of the Varsi art gallery) full of color cans, her head leaning on the train window while she glances at her travel mates and, suddenly, she takes out her sketch-book, opens it on her lap and draws profiles, faces and atmospheres, which maybe one day will come into life on a wall in a completely different part of the world.

Her characters, mostly women, dreamy blow on a dandelion from a corner in Amsterdam, sleep on a Vitry Sur Seine block, hug their lovers on a wall in Brest; they all are romantically suspended in a soft, parallel universe, a very colorful, extremely creative but yet introspective world also you can join by stopping in front of Alice’s artworks and smiling back at her characters.
And so, like under a magic spell, Alice’s characters will take you Anywhere.
