PORCELAIN MURAL ARTIST TRAINED IN SEVRES
Nature comes to life and blooms into Alice Riehl’s work. The intricate pattern of her wall art is an invitation to a journey through an imaginary garden. She embraces the heritage of French Decorative Arts, ornamental and porcelain, and turns it into a sculptural material that continues endlessly. Alice carefully considers each handmade detail to create a vivid harmony.
Alice moved beyond her professional corporate life when she met porcelain during her training at the French Ceramics Institute in Sèvres in 2003. Nurtured by the memory of her grandmother’s needlework, she turned the peculiar texture of the combination of porcelain and laces into the signature of her work. Porcelain is soft and unpredictable. The strength of the material unveils itself in harmonies of white shades, reflecting light indefinitely.
In 2010, the beginning of the wall installations opened a world of possibilities, materialized in 2012 in two murals for the lobby of the Intercontinental Hotel in Marseille. Ever since from a former Pope apartment in a stately Roman palace, to a Taiwanese newly built family mansion, Alice Riehl’s work inhabits private and public spaces in Europe, America, Middle East and Asia. A multiple scales melody that Alice composes according to her encounters and inspirations.
