Working in residence in Gallery 2, Aliesha creates works towards her graduating exhibition (late 2016) drawing predominantly on her recent experiences as a print scholarship student in China.
Using a variety of photography and print techniques, Aliesha expands her consideration of moments in time that do not necessarily add up correctly, but still manage to form a tangible reality. Through sculptural installations and ‘Artists Books’, Aliesha considers our limited capacity to understand the sublime qualities of life - a riddle we cannot solve in our quest to know and understand everything.
Aliesha is currently studying Visual Arts at ECU, with a body of her work exhibited across Perth. In 2016, Aliesha was selected to participate in Sculpture By The Sea at Cottesloe Beach and was awarded the Rio Tinto Young Emerging Artist Mentorship Program. In 2015, Aliesha was awarded a federal Colombo Scholarship to take part in a study tour at the Shanghai Publishing and Printing College. In addition to this study tour, she had the opportunity to exhibit in an international exhibition, Impact 9, in Hangzhou China.
